ZOOMER SQUAD: ONTARIO LAUNCHES AN INDEPENDENT COMMISSION INTO THE LTC CRISIS-AUGUST 3 2020

Libby Znaimer is joined by the Zoomer Squad’s Marissa Lennox, Chief Policy Officer at CARP, David Cravit, Vice President of Zoomer Media, and Peter Muggeridge, Senior Editor of Zoomer Magazine. Then, we will be joined by special guest, Bill VanGorder. He is the incoming Chief Policy Officer for CARP while Marissa is on mat leave.

In the news: Ontario has launched an independent commission into the long-term care crisis and also released an LTC staffing study report. Dr. Doris Grinspun of the Registered Nurses Association joined Libby Znaimer on this past weekend’s Zoomer Week in Review to say that, “we don’t need any further commissions to know what went wrong. What we need now is….hiring more PSWs, more RNs and making sure we have the PPE”. And, some experts are saying that the federal government’s new COVID-19 contact tracing app poses accessibility issues for some Seniors. Today also marks Marissa Lennox’s last day with us on the Zoomer Squad before she embarks on maternity leave! We bid her a temporary farewell.
