Senior Care Homes: What you should Know
Vancouver Sun

Seniors in privately run care homes are far more likely to die in hospital than those who live in facilities run by public health authorities and you are 32% more likely to be sent to a hospital emergency department.

In response to a high level of interest in the Office of the Seniors Advocate’s latest report From Residential Care to Hospital: A Pattern Emerges, Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie delivered a presentation to interested stakeholders, media, and members of the public. This presentation was conducted jointly with Dr. Jeff Poss and Dr. Kim McGrail–the two lead researchers behind the report–and provided a deeper dive into the statistical methodology and data sources used. It was followed by a one hour Q&A session.
