Positive Aging- Reshaping Care for Older Alduts (SK Seniors Mechanism)

SSM 2021 CONFERENCE

Positive Aging – Reshaping Care for Older Adults

Speakers

Moira Welsh  Investigative journalist for the Toronto Star. Author of Happily Ever Older – Revolutionary Approaches to Long Term Care . . She has written extensively on seniors’ issues, with a focus on long-term care, along with issues related to social justice, health and the environment. Moira has co-authored investigations that have won three National Newspaper Awards and a Michener Award for Public Service Journalism.  Moira will provide inspiring examples of changing residential care from a hospital model to a community model, where residents participate in decision-making and supporting one another in their home.

Don Drummond  is the Stauffer-Dunning Fellow and Adjunct Professor at the School of Policy Studies at Queen’s University.  He is known for his wide contributions to public policy in Canada and extensive citation on economic issues.

Don will speak on the Benefits of Aging in Place, using the research from the recent report Ageing Well, which proposes a proactive, coordinated, and holistic model that considers the healthcare needs of Canada’s rapidly ageing population in tandem with seniors’ housing, lifestyle and social needs.

 Chamandeep Chehl is a senior public servant in the Australian Federal Government. She is currently responsible for the AUD$4.3 billion/year Home Care Packages Program. She has over 25 years of experience in the Australian Public Service (APS), having started as a graduate economist. The world of “wicked problems” and the honour of making a positive difference to lives of senior Australians’ through the APS is what makes her jump out of bed very morning. Coming to the Conference live from Australia, Chamandeep will share her deep, practical knowledge about how Australia provides Home Supports for aging in place and how these programs are received and used by older Australians.
