Shaping the Future of Care Closer to Home for Older Adults

Older people should be free to choose to age in place – meaning people should be supported to live safely and independently at home or in the community, for as long as they wish and are able. But what does this look like in Canada?  And how do we work together to achieve it?

There are many innovations and models of care across the country that empower people to have independence, choice, and opportunities to improve their quality of life. HEC is bringing together people to have a conversation to identify what matters and promote excellence in care for older adults within home care.

We want to hear from those who are providing care to older adults in the home and community, those who are receiving care in the home and community, and family and caregivers.

To participate, join one of our focus groups and share your experiences, insights, and big (and small) ideas to help shape the future of care closer to home for older adults.

Virtual focus groups will be held on October 12, 14 and 15, 2021 and run for approximately 60 to 90 minutes. There is no preparation time required.
