Conference – Together We Care

April 8, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - April 10, 2024 @ 1:00 pm

Together We Care



In four years, the first of the Baby Boomers will reach 80 and by 2040, Ontario’s population over 80 is expected to double. For many, grasping the implications of this major demographic shift proves challenging.

How can we work together to address this pivotal time across all sectors to care for our aging population, ensuring we have the appropriate infrastructure, staffing, and partnerships in place for today and tomorrow?

We are seeking compelling content that focuses on exploring and empowering quality care through innovations, knowledge exchange and practical solutions. Together, we will learn and share about the best ways for quality care and empower ourselves to meet the needs of our residents, for now and for the future.


2024 Programming Streams

Our program will focus on the following five key programming streams:

  • Investing in our People and Empowering our Teams: Spotlights methods to enhance the recruitment, retention, and training of staff members, including strategies aimed at improving the overall staff experience.
  • Quality of Care and Quality of Life: Highlights quality improvement initiatives and strategies, including optimizing the utilization of data and processes to enhance the quality of care.
  • Implementing Operational Excellence Across Organizations: Highlights operational strategies for a proactive approach to enhance the resident experience and quality of care and quality of living.
  • Culinary and Nutrition: Showcases food modification innovations, holistic approaches to dietary management, enhancing the dining experience, and navigating the regulatory challenges shaping the culinary and nutrition landscape.
