#BCCPA2021 Day 3 panel — Redesigning the Future of Seniors Care
The third and final panel session of our #BCCPA2021 Annual Conference — The Three Rs: Reflection, Resilience, and Reinvention — will focus on the topic of Reinvention at the session titled “Redesigning the Future of Seniors Care.” Our four esteemed panelists will engage in a discussion moderated by BCCPA Vice President Mike Klassen. The dire consequences of COVID-19 entering care homes has led to calls for reforms. These recommended changes to our elder care system include a call to significantly increase funding and staffing levels; to focus on keeping seniors at home; to redesign physical infrastructure; to reduce the role of the private sector, and to explore new care models.
Although COVID crisis may have negatively affected the reputation of Canada’s long-term care sector, it provides an impetus for overdue changes that reflect what people want for themselves and their loved ones in care. This panel will discuss how the sector can resource and fund a new model of care, how we can deliver better care, and what models we can use to shape our own.
