PETERS – Will the pandemic cause us to rethink how we care for our seniors?

(BC Care Providers Association, Facebook)

AS WE GET OLDER, our worlds tend to get smaller.

By the time we are elderly and perhaps living in seniors apartments or a longterm care facility, our worlds can be infinitesimally small.

While we focus on maintaining the physical health of seniors, it’s often their social and emotional needs that can go unmet.
In that context, it must have been extremely difficult for Dr. Bonnie Henry and health officials across the country to cut off access to long-term care facilities when the pandemic set in.
