On Tuesday, May 18, 2021 from 2:00-3:00pm, Shirley Bond and Isobel Mackenzie with host a virtual townhall to discuss Seniors and COVID-19 - Lessons Learned and Next Steps - Island Health.
Shirley Bond, Interim Leader of the Official Opposition, MLA for Prince George-Valemount and Critic for Seniors Services and Long Term Care is leading and hosting a townhall series with The Office of The Seniors Advocate, where Isobel Mackenzie will be presenting.
This is an opportunity to have a voice for seniors and for those that are connected with programs and services that provide resources and opportunities to our elders. It will ensure that the right people are hearing about what is happening in communities around British Columbia and what is needed for seniors.
Shirley Bond and Isobel Mackenzie are breaking them up by regional health authority as there is awareness that people have different needs depending on their region. Sessions have been developed based on what they’ve heard thus far from communities and where emerging needs indicate more focus is required.
It doesn’t matter how much/how little participants are engaging with seniors, if they have experience or information to offer, their feedback is valuable. It’s also important that there is a great cross-section of stakeholders on each call – diversity is critical to a more comprehensive discussion.
We look forward to having you join us!
