Change Matters, Now

Research with individuals & families & stakeholders consistently indicates an urgent need for fundamental change. We need to create an environment for quality of living as we age.

Alberta can be a leader in moving forward in new ways—and we ALL gain when we:

  • Increase opportunities for healthy living and aging.
  • Provide more services and choices for living in the community.
  • Improve connections and strength across services and care partners.
  • Enhance quality of resident living and quality of work-life in facility-based continuing care.

Making these changes and the future vision a reality means:

  1. Creating momentum
    • Continuing dialogue with individuals, families, care partners, communities, and service providers.
    • Learning as we go, developing new perspectives and attitudes, and co-creating the future.
  2. Knowing change takes time. But, remaining resolute in the need for action by:
    • government
    • communities
    • organizations across the system
    • and each one of us!
  3. Staying the course. This will be the ultimate test for a future for older Albertans that is different from today.
