Concerned Friends welcomes the opportunity to speak to groups about our work and the need for continued improvements for the residents, families and staff in the long-term care system.
In the past year, we shared our philosophy and experiences with the following groups.
Elder Connections Networking Breakfast
George Brown College: Gerontology and Activation Class (with Lois Dent)
University of Toronto: Family Care Office
Sigma Beta Phi Sorority
OLTCA Expert Panel on LTC Innovation
McMaster University Gibrea School on Aging: Summer Institute
Quality Health Network: Summer Camp on quality improvement
Durham Alzheimer Society
Personnel Support Worker Network Ontario: Annual Conference
Responsive Management Education Day
Lanark Heights LTC Home, Family Council, Kitchener
Since Concerned Friends is a volunteer-driven organization, its time is limited by the time of its volunteers. Every effort is made to accommodate all speaking requests but from time to time we do have to turn down speaking engagements. Contact us to arrange a speaking engagement.
