Cafe Scientifique: Gender Matters

Caring about Long-term Residential Care

Long-term residential care is mainly care for women by women. What are the consequences for policy and practices? How can we ensure those who live and work in long-term care are treated with dignity and respect?

Governments and the boomer generation are planning for aging at home, but many still do and will need long-term residential care. How can we make that care as good as possible?

Our experts will draw on recent research from Germany, BC and Ontario to provoke a conversation about how and why gender matters in long-term residential care.

Join us in this conversation on an issue that matters to us all.
