Shedding the Light on Seniors' Care

Parksville, BC

Join us at a free public forum to discuss BC Ombudsperson Kim Carter's comprehensive recommendations for improving quality, accessibility, and accountability in BC's home and community care system. Ms. Carter's recommendations were released February 14 as part of her second and final report on her province-wide investigation into "systemic issues" in seniors care in BC.

The purpose of the forum is not to come to one common understanding or analysis of the Ombudsperson's report, or the government's response to it, but rather to learn more and discuss ideas in an open dialogue.

Who should attend this forum? Community organizations, people or groups who work directly with seniors, organizations representing service providers or seniors care workers, advocates, members of the Lower Mainland seniors-led community planning tables, and others who would find it valuable to participate.

Presenters: Kim Carter B.C. Ombudsperson and March Cohen, CCPA research associate
