Elder Care: Understanding the Rights of Family Caregivers for Seniors in LTC Homes

Date: Monday, November 30, 2020
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

During this pandemic, the rights of caregivers to visit family and friends in long-term care (LTC) have been increasingly unclear.

This webinar will explore the rights of caregivers during COVID19, particularly about visiting loved ones in LTC both when an outbreak is occurring and when it is not. Participants will learn the governing legislation and regulations, how to navigate blockages with LTC administration and what your rights really are.

Facilitator:  Laura Tamblyn Watts, president and CEO of CanAge, Canada’s Seniors Advocacy Organization, is a highly sought after expert regarding matters involving older adults in Canada and around the world. She also teaches at the University of Toronto, where she is also a Fellow of the Institute for Lifecourse and Aging.

Registration required. University of Toronto students, staff, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and their partners are welcome. If you have any access needs to ensure your full participation in this event, please contact the Family Care Office and we will try our best to work with you and make appropriate arrangements.
