In this episode of The HQ podcast, we discuss the importance of putting the “home” back in long-term care facilities and finding more effective ways to treat our seniors with care and dignity.
Joining us in our conversation are two remarkable healthcare leaders from the Region of Peel. Ann-Marie Case-Volkert, who is the Director of Long-Term Care in the Health Services Department of the Region of Peel, and Monica Goodban, whose work focuses on the implementation of emotion-based care approaches, such as the Butterfly Model of Care.
Tune in as we engage with these healthcare leaders to learn and understand what the Butterfly Model of Care is and how it has improved the lives of those in their care.
