20/20 Vision: Announcing the BCCPA Annual Conference theme
Do you have 20/20 vision? What is your vision for the future of seniors’ living and care in B.C.?
BC Care Providers Association is pleased to announce the theme for its 43rd Annual Conference—20/20: A Vision for Seniors.
The conference, which takes please May 24-26th, 2020 at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, will take a retrospective view of the past twenty years and focus on what the seniors’ living and care sector should look like twenty years from now.
In particular, the focus will be on the broad range of seniors’ living and care services and supports, including long-term care, home health care, assisted living and independent living. Issues related to seniors’ housing will also be discussed as seniors look to age in place.
We will look at best or promising practices being employed internationally which could also be implemented in Canada or British Columbia, and discuss how we can work collaboratively to meet the needs of a rapidly aging population with increasing expectations.
Delegate registration will open February 1st, 2020.
