Our most pressing challenges in healthcare require focused, constructive discussions. Sharing openly and listening to diverse perspectives and experiences. At Healthcare Excellence Canada, we’ve developed the Spotlight Series to do just that.
It’s about connecting people to have conversations with a purpose. Responding quickly to current issues by featuring strategies for improvement that are transferable. We’ll explore solutions to make improvements last, as we work together to shape the future of quality and safety in healthcare across the country.
Better home care for older adults and caregivers
There’s an increasing need for home care services across Canada. Most older adults in Canada want to age at home for as long as possible, and 1 in 9 long-term care residents potentially could have been cared for at home - if they’d had the proper supports.
To provide excellent care, including home care, we need to ensure that those providing vital support for older adults receiving home care are adequately supported. This includes home care providers and essential care partners (also known as caregivers). By focusing on provider and caregiver needs, home care can improve for all involved.
Join us to explore the emerging research and work on how we can support providers, caregivers and clients, including some of the latest tools and resources.
