The pandemic exposed serious problems in long-term care in Canada, but what change is needed, and what creative solutions can be applied? We talk to Isobel Mackenzie, the seniors advocate for B.C.; Dr. Jocelyn Charles, medical director of the Veterans Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, who works closely with the Dorothy Macham Home for veterans with challenging behaviours and dementia; and Alex Mihailidis, scientific director of Age Well, who is leading a Canadian Standards Association group to create standards on long-term care.
