Candace Chartier CEO, Ontario Long-Term Care Association: Action for Seniors11:45am-1:30pm | Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel - 525 Bay Street, Toronto
Ontario’s long-term care homes are facing unprecedented challenges as a result of dramatically increasing rates of acuity among the seniors they’re caring for. More and more, our long-term care homes are finding that they’re ill-equipped to meet today’s demands, as a result of an outdated system and funding that hasn’t kept pace with the care needs of our aging population.
On January 27th, 2016, Candace Chartier, President and CEO of the Ontario Long Term Care Association, will speak about these challenges and put forward a realistic plan to provide seniors living in long-term care with the care they deserve. By implementing these recommendations, seniors in Ontario will be the beneficiaries of the best care possible, and the health system will benefit from the savings generated when we’re caring for people in the most appropriate setting.
