Event Date: Jul 13, 2016
The presentation is based on research by interdisciplinary teams in six countries (Canada, Germany, Norway, Sweden, the UK and the US).
The studies of 25 different long-term residential care facilities provide ideas big and small that are worth thinking about in terms of how they could work in Canada. The examples are intended to prompt discussion rather than provide single models and to suggest ways to put more life into years in long-term care.
