Living Fully

Next Steps for the Canadian culture change movement

Canada’s second national conference on culture change was another great success!  We welcomed 350 delegates including older adults/residents, caregivers, educators, policy makers, students and researchers  from all over the country to learn with and from each other about how to enhance the journey of aging across the continuum of care.

Following the conference, a panel of culture change leaders met to identify areas of focus for the culture change movement. It was agreed that “living fully”, rather than “aging well” should be the goal of the movement. The panel discussed barriers that prevent us from living fully as we age as well as potential strategies to advance the culture change movement in Canada over the next two to three years. The discussion is summarized in a white paper, which is available for download. Get the “Living Fully” white paper here.
