Episode 126 – A New Standard for Long-Term Care

On this episode our correspondent, Emily Rendell-Watson, explores long term care in Canada.

In January of 2022, the Health Standards Organization (HSO)released a draft of proposed changes to Canada’s Long-Term Care Services Guidelines. The draft opened an important discussion around senior care amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

How we advocate for seniors today defines what our experience will be as we age. So, we asked Emily to find out more about how Edmontonians are feeling about the proposed changes.
