Bringing together leading policymakers, decision-makers, and healthcare experts, Canada 2020 is convening a half-day virtual conference focused on reforming and redesigning Canada’s seniors’ care sector. Learning from the hard lessons of this pandemic, we will discuss the immediate steps we can take to restore the trust that has been broken, and how care should best be delivered, from home care to retirement and long-term care homes.
With 69% of pandemic-related deaths being in long-term care and retirement homes and the highest reported proportion of pandemic-related deaths internationally for long-term care facilities, the impact of COVID-19 has put a spotlight on how Canadian seniors are cared for and questions regarding what needs to change.
While the pandemic has galvanized public attention, deep fractures in Canada’s seniors-care sector are decades in the making and have exposed and amplified a failure of some to value and invest in safe and effective care. In order to build back better for our seniors, policy reforms and structural changes are critical.
