Improving the quality of life and health outcomes in long term care.
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 This Is Important
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.
