New Book – March 2, 2021

It took the coronavirus pandemic to open our eyes to the deplorable state of so many of the nation”s long-term care homes: the inhumane conditions, overworked and underpaid staff, and lack of oversight. In this timely new book, esteemed health reporter André Picard reveals the full extent of the crisis in eldercare, and offers an urgently needed prescription to fix a broken system.

In Neglected No More, André Picard takes a hard look at how we came to embrace mass institutionalization, and lays out what can and must be done to improve the state of care for our elders, a highly vulnerable population with complex needs and little ability to advocate for themselves.

Tuesday’s meeting of Canada’s top leaders was little more than a gathering of pencil-pushing accountants, each trying to burnish their bottom line. Where is the “vision” and real reform required to get medicare back on track? By @picardonhealth #cdnhealth

Can't say it better than @picardonhealth "What we need from our leaders is some true leadership, for example a firm commitment that every Canadian will have ready access to a primary care provider... an initiative we could cost out, invest in & measure its progress in real time."
