As Canada’s population ages, services for seniors are becoming more important to provide, and more challenging to deliver. Compared with the overall Canadian population, seniors are more frequent users of provincial and territorial health care systems and related social services, which puts additional strain on funding. However, by taking heed current trends as well as the strengths and weaknesses of our present arrangements in seniors care, Canada can adapt to meet the needs of our oldest citizens.
Join us for a 60-minute webinar describing The Conference Board of Canada's findings on the present and future of senior care in Canada. This webinar will provide an overview of current seniors’ care services in Canada by province and territory. The presentation will summarize the situation of caregivers and the legislative, tax and other supports that may—or may not—exist to help them care for their loved ones.
This webinar will also provide participants with a first look at survey results from the Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care. These findings provide a comprehensive picture of how Canadians themselves use, perceive and assess the existing systems of home and community care, which sets the context for additional Conference Board research into senior care in Canada.
Participants will get the unique perspective of the Conference Board on the national picture as it relates to services for seniors. This is a webinar not to be missed for health policy-makers at the federal and provincial levels, health and community care providers, and those involved in advocacy, such as seniors organizations and charitable organizations.
