On September 15th, season 9 of our high-profile speaker series Care to Chat kicked off with a special Canada elections edition featuring a panel of national representatives who discussed the politics and possibilities facing the seniors care sector within Canada. Moderated by BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) Vice President of Public Affairs Mike Klassen, constructive discussion was generated between expert panelists BCCPA CEO and former BC Minister of Health Terry Lake, CanAge President & CEO Laura Tamblyn-Watts, and Canadian Association of Long-Term Care (CALTC) CEO Jodi Hall.
Several other national voices participated in the dialogue as well, including Health Association of Nova Scotia Director of Member & Public Engagement Mary Donovan, AdvantAge Ontario CEO Lisa Levin, and Alberta Continuing Care Association Executive Director Wayne Morishita.
A diversity of topics on current Canada elections and the major parties’ platform positions on elderly care were discussed, the wide range of audience who joined from across Canada were engaged in different issues and insights regarding the seniors’ care sector. Dialogues revolved around potential improvements in seniors’ care for the next elected federal government, this included proposals and recommendations from CanAge and CALTC to enhance the lives of seniors in care homes, as well as long-term care standards and best practices to better support the sector. Discussions also included recommendations on how the next elected party can promote awareness to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and possible support efforts that can be implemented.
With the commencement of Season 9 of Care to Chat, we anticipate compelling conversations and intriguing topics on B.C.’s continuing care sector in the upcoming installments of this popular speaker series.
