Our hope is to improve the quality of life and health outcomes in long-term care. We chose long-term care as our representative domain of interest and of the website identity. We envision long-term care not simply as a place of care, and certainly not as a facility of care. Long-term care implies the continuum of care through which people transition at certain life stages unique to each individual in which long-term health needs can be met. On this website, we will address the entire spectrum of older adult care.

Our 

Hope

Though we will strive to improve long-term care far and wide, please note that we currently limit the scope of our research and resource linking activities to a Saskatchewan and Canadian context. Thank you for your interest. Let us know if we can still be of assistance!

Why

we

Care

In 2012, 1 in 7 adults was over the age of 65. By 2030 this number is predicted to be 1 in 4 (Government of Canada, 2014). With the continued ageing of the population, the demand for long term care beds is set to increase, where older adults have access to 24 hour/7 days a week assistance with activities of daily living and monitoring of their health.
