Healthy aging : new directions for care : public and stakeholder response to the final report of the Long Term Care Policy Advisory Committee

Description

Alberta’s population is aging. Preparing the continuing care system now to address the current and emerging challenges is a priority. In November, 1997, the Minister of Health appointed a Long Term Care Policy Advisory Committee to conduct a comprehensive two year study of long term care services in the province. Their work resulted in a three part report Healthy Aging: New Directions for Care, containing a vision, principles and 50 recommendations for building on the strengths of the existing system and proposing innovative approaches for meeting future needs and demands. Upon release of the report, a public consultative process, using a web-based survey, was undertaken to gather responses and feedback on the recommendations. Over 100 service providers, operators of continuing care facilities, professional and provincial associations, provincial and regional health authorities and the public responded. Appendix A contains a listing of all respondents.
