On this episode our correspondent, Emily Rendell-Watson, explores long term care in Canada.
In January of 2022, the Health Standards Organization (HSO) released a draft of proposed changes to Canada’s Long-Term Care Services Guidelines. The draft opened an important discussion around senior care amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
