Join An Online Zoom Meeting on the Crisis in Our Long-Term Care Homes
Niagara District Council of Women (NDCW) to hold Zoom Public Meeting on Wednesday, January 20th, 7:30 P.M. re: “Elder Care-Seniors Homes, Long Term Care Workers – A Crisis in Care & How to Improve a Broken System!”
An Invite from the Niagara District Council of Women (NDCW)
Posted January 14th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
Niagara, Ontario – In the height of the COVID storm, as seniors living in long term care facilities are faced with the results of past errors such as old and crowded living space, fewer and fewer hours of care and poorly paid overworked front line staff , they now find themselves isolated from families and friends and are the most at risk from illness and death from this relentless pandemic.
NDCW, which as a member of the Provincial Council of Women of Ontario has lobbied the government since the early 1980s to improve senior care, considers this a crisis which could well have been avoided and now needs immediate remedial and preventative actions.
As NDCW President Gracia Janes notes, “This may be the most difficult of times to deal with all the flaws in the system, but it is certainly the time for everyone to work together towards helping our most vulnerable Ontarians now , and then on into the future. ”
Niagara Falls MPP Wayne Gates, seen here calling for more protection for long-term care residents and workers this past November, with St. Catharines MPP Jennie Stevens to his right, will be among those participating in this online event.
To focus on this goal the Niagara District Council of Women has invited three knowledgeable, respected, action-oriented Niagara advocates, MPP Wayne Gates, Network for Long Term Care Chair, Carol Dueck ,and founder of the Niagara Guardian Angels, Betty Miller, to present their views and answer our questions, at a Zoom meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday January 20th.
