Niagara District Council of Women (NDCW) to hold Zoom Public Meeting on Wednesday, January 20th, 7:30 P.M. re: “Elder Care-Seniors Homes, Long Term Care Workers – A Crisis in Care & How to Improve a Broken System!”

An Invited from the Niagara District Council of Women (NDCW)

Posted January 14th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

Niagara, Ontario – In the height of  the COVID  storm,  as seniors living in long term care facilities  are faced with the results of  past errors such as old  and  crowded living space, fewer and fewer hours of care and  poorly paid overworked front line  staff ,  they now find themselves isolated from families and friends and are the   most at risk from illness and death from this  relentless  pandemic. 

NDCW, which as a member of the Provincial Council of Women of Ontario  has lobbied the government  since the early 1980s to improve senior care, considers this a  crisis  which could well have been avoided and now needs immediate remedial and preventative  actions.

 As NDCW President  Gracia Janes  notes,  “This may be the most difficult of times to deal with all the flaws in the system, but it is certainly the time for everyone to work together  towards helping our most vulnerable Ontarians now , and then on into the future. ”

Niagara Falls MPP Wayne Gates, seen here calling for more protection for long-term care residents and workers this past November, with St. Catharines MPP Jennie Stevens to his right, will be among those participating in this online event.

To focus on  this goal the Niagara District Council of Women has invited   three knowledgeable,  respected,  action-oriented  Niagara advocates,  MPP Wayne Gates, Network for Long Term Care Chair, Carol Dueck ,and founder of the Niagara  Guardian Angels, Beth Miller, to  present their views and answer our questions, at a Zoom meeting at 7:30 p.m.  Wednesday  January  20th.
