Shaping the Future of Care Closer to Home for Older Adults

Older people should be free to choose to age in place – meaning people are supported to live safely and independently at home or in the community.  What does this look like in Canada, and how do we work together to achieve it?

Over the last year, Healthcare Excellence Canada (HEC) has come together with pan-Canadian health organizations and other partners to explore opportunities to reimagine excellence in care for older adults living at home.  We’ve reviewed relevant literature and reports; engaged in numerous conversations with organizations and individuals working in this space; and asked people with lived experience and those working directly in the home care field to share their own learnings and priorities for supporting older adults to access safe and quality care at home. 

Find out what we heard about what matters and how we can promote excellence in care for older adults within home and community.
