The pandemic has exposed major issues in the services and supports for seniors in Canada and in many other countries. In Canada, the infection and death rates from COVID 19 amongst elders living in ‘residential care” was much greater than for those in community settings. These issues spurred CFUW members to become active advocates in the search for better ways to support aging citizens. CFUW passed a resolution on elder care, and a national study group held meetings since last fall garnering knowledge and raising awareness.
We know that other GWI members have valuable information about practices used in their jurisdictions: what works, what should change. What do you, as GWI members, believe you can do or have done to improve outcomes for aging citizens?
On 1 October let’s start the conversation about how GWI members can help
to improve care of elder persons.
