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

SSM 2021 CONFERENCE

Positive Aging – Reshaping Care for Older Adults

Speakers for the panel/discussion Mapping the Future: Culture, Policy and Practice

  André Picard  Canada’s top health columnist working at The Globe and Mail since 1987 and the author of six books, including the current bestseller Neglected No More: The Urgent Need To Improve the Lives of Canada’s Elders. He has raised awareness of pressing health issues, shared important medical research findings and educated the public on how health care is funded and delivered. His voice helps shape the national discussion on the timely, sensitive and even controversial issues that affect our health.  Picard will share why he thinks it is important for Canadians to view health issues not just from a personal perspective but from a societal and political lens.                                                                 

Dr. Dennis Kendel has served in senior management and governance roles with a diverse spectrum of provincial and national healthcare agencies. Since 2011 he has also provided consulting services to Health Canada and several provincial Ministries of Health focused primarily on healthcare quality improvement. He encourages all citizens to actively engage their elected leaders in dialogue about issues that matter to them. As a senior himself, Dennis uses Twitter as a social media platform to encourage our elected leaders to implement policies and services that support the capacity of our elders to live in our communities as long as possible.

Shan Landry is an active older adult who enjoys contributing to her community through volunteering and contract work. During her career as a social worker and then as a senior administrator in the Saskatoon Health Region she worked towards promoting the basic determinants of health and connecting traditional health care services to a wider role in improving community wellbeing. Shan has served on many community, and non -profit boards including the Saskatoon Council on Aging, the Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism, Saskatoon Crisis Intervention Service and the Prairie Hospice Society. Over the last year Shan has been a founding member of the Saskatchewan Long-Term-Care Network. Shan is a committed advocate for community development and change and enjoys working alongside those who want to share life experiences, promote innovation or champion new perspectives of our world.
