As our senior population increases, there are a lot of questions around how we’re going to provide the care that the baby boom generation will need. Join OLTCA’s Donna Duncan in conversation with Dr. Bob Bell, former Deputy Minister of Health for Ontario, as they discuss what strategies can help to keep more seniors at home as they age, and why increasing the number of long-term care beds is also necessary.
Coming of Age is a podcast by the Ontario Long-Term Care Association (OLTCA) that explores some of the most pressing issues surrounding seniors’ care in the province today. Addressing the tough challenges like staffing issues, infrastructure and ageism, host Donna Duncan, the CEO of the OLTCA, brings a new perspective to seniors’ care in Ontario.
If you or a close loved one is experiencing challenges due to ageing or the seniors’ care system in Ontario, this podcast can help you learn more about the systemic issues we face as a province today and potential solutions for overcoming them in the future.
While it can be disheartening to learn about these challenging problems, it’s important that we shine a light on them so we can work towards a better future for our ageing population.
