Our Health - The Future of Long-Term Care in Simcoe County

Date: Oct 21, 2021 - Oct 21, 2021

Location: Online Event

Dr. Samir Sinha, Director of Geriatrics at Sinai Health in Toronto, states that if we reach the age of 65, current analysis show that on average, we will have another 20 years to live, of which 17 will be “pretty good”. However, in those later years, most seniors will need some assistance because of frailty or cognitive decline.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on seniors and has shone a light on several practices in the long-term care home system that made this population particularly vulnerable during this crisis. This has left many of us worrying about what the future holds for our aging parents and ourselves when it comes time to tap into available long-term care resources.

OUR HEALTH is pleased to bring together leaders from three local long-term care providers (Hillcrest Village, Jarlette Health Services and the County of Simcoe Health and Emergency Services) to discuss lessons learned during the pandemic and how this knowledge will shape future planning and reform in the long-term care sector. Also on the panel is a 75-year-old baby boomer who will speak about alternative long-term care options.

This event will be LIVE at 7:30 PM on October 21, 2021 and will broadcast on all Rogers tv Simcoe County area channels. Rogers tv can be found on channel 10 in Barrie and Orillia, channel 53 in Midland and Collingwood, and channel 65 in the Borden/Alliston area. For those with smart phones, tablets or computers with a Wi-Fi connection, you can view online at www.rogerstv.com/midland.
