How attention to provincial long-term care policies can support or inhibit resident quality of life
July 21 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
July 2021—Long-term care homes are complex settings in which people live and work. They are a place many call “home” in their later years yet they are highly-regulated environments with a strong emphasis on safety and security. This paradox emerges as a key message from our review of policies in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Nova Scotia and has been further highlighted during the pandemic. This presentation will provide insights from the Seniors-Adding Life to Years project’s policy review and challenge decision makers to think about how policies support or inhibit resident quality of life.
