Care to Chat 50% Sold Out

Fiscally Frail Ad draft 1It has been just under a month since ticket sales opened for the February 4th Care to Chat and the event is already 50% sold out! The highly anticipated event titled, Fiscally Frail: How Will We Meet The Health Needs Of An Aging Society In An Era Of Limited Budgets? will include a panel of four Health Authority Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) as well as representatives from the Ministry of Health and the continuing care sector. They will discuss the current challenges of BC’s Residential Care Funding Model, and what both funders and operators are doing to strike a balance between the competing priorities of economic sustainability, and ensuring the well-being and dignity of seniors.

“With an aging demographic that is projected to be almost 5% higher than the national average by 2038, the economic sustainability of the residential funding model in BC faces considerable challenges ahead,” says Michael Kary Director of Policy and Research. “The fact that we are 50% sold out, less than one month since opening up ticket sales demonstrates that our members are eager to join the dialogue on this issue with the CFO’s of BC’s health authorities.”
