Reflecting on the COVID-19 Pandemic: Examining Themes from Long Term Care – An International Virtual Town Hall
Join us September 25, 2020 for an international event convening a wide range of experts and reviewing evidence briefs and experience from around the world to inform future planning in Long Term Care and Older Person’s Care.
Today is the United Nations' International Day of Older Persons and the launch of the World Health Organizations' Decade of Healthy Ageing. Poignantly, the timing this year coincides with the release of three critical reports highlighting the heart breaking experiences of older adults living in long term care (LTC) and their family and friend caregivers, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I find discussions like this are very beneficial. People talking and telling their stories, and then learning from each other. But also professionals being there, to answer our questions, and help by giving us material.
