A few weeks ago I shared the Canadian Medical Association’s “Demand a Plan” which calls on governments to develop a National Strategy for Senior Care and invited readers to learn about it and, if found helpful, to become more involved. This time, I am sharing that the CMA’s “Demand a Plan” has launched a “new” website.
So what can you do to help with the senior care strategy?
The more we, seniors, our children, friends, as current/future patients and caregivers are informed, the better decisions we can make for ourselves and our loved ones.
This is very important at a time which, depending on the severity of the health issue, our thinking may be clouded with concern or fear and yet we will have to make decisions about health care for ourselves or those we love.
We do not know when health care issues will occur, as it can happen in the blink of an eye, a walk down some steps, or ride in a car. We can however, be prepared, not for the specific health issue, but by knowing what to, whom to contact, where to find information, whom to speak with, what we can expect and how to go about accessing the right care, at the right time.
This new website just launched has been revamped to make it easier to for all of us to effect real change.
Now national in scope with over 50,000 Canadians supporting it, it is gaining momentum. Read about the changes, how it is easier than ever to support it and share with your family and friends.
When we launched Demand a Plan in 2014, our goal was to affect real change for seniors in Canada. What started as a small group of passionate supporters has grown into a national movement over 50,000 strong. Our goal hasn’t changed over the years, but thanks to you, our call for a national seniors strategy is louder than ever.
That’s why today we’re incredibly excited to announce the launch of the all new Demand a Plan.
Your passion and commitment have inspired us to completely revamp the site, making it easier for you to take action, show your support, and get others involved.
