This video comprises an address to the attendees of the 23rd Annual John K. Friesen Conference, "Housing Alternatives for an Aging Population" held May 28-29, 2014, Vancouver, BC.

The Simon Fraser University Gerontology Research Centre (GRC) and associated Gerontology Department are pleased to welcome you to the 23rd John K. Friesen Conference. This year’s conference, organized and hosted in cooperation with the Lifelong Learning Adults 55+ Program, explores a range of tenure arrangements, housing forms, and service models currently available and under development for adults 55+ in British Columbia, including cohousing popular in the USA; life-lease projects, popular in the prairie provinces; mixed-tenure models and models targeted to specific groups (e.g., Performing Arts Lodges; ethno-cultural housing). Assisted Living was discussed as well as housing and service options that do not require people to move from their current home (e.g., the Village Model, United Way’s Better at Home Program, retro-fitting or adding “smart” technologies). Keynote speakers, expert panels and poster presentations discussed the pros and cons of each housing option and the type of resident for whom it is best suited. The objective of the conference was to provide information that enable people aged 55+ to plan ahead and make informed choices. As well, it was designed to provide a forum for developers (private, public & non-profit) to learn what adults aged 55+ are looking for in the way of housing for their later years.

Abstract: 

This video comprises the welcoming address by Dr. Andrew Sixsmith to the attendees of the 22nd Annual John K. Friesen Conference, "Taboo Topics in Residential Care," held MAY 27-28, 2013, Vancouver, BC.

 

The Simon Fraser University Gerontology Research Centre (GRC) and the associated Gerontology Department in cooperation with Fraser Health, the Public Guardian and Trustee of British Columbia, the Seniors’ Directorate, Ministry of Health, Province of British Columbia and Vancouver Coastal Health have brought together a group of Canadian experts in residential care policy, practice and research to address such difficult-to-deal-with issues as resident-resident aggression; theft and financial exploitation in institutional settings; alcohol, drug and tobacco use and abuse; sexuality; and dying and death. The conference will also discuss when it is and is not appropriate to use physical and/or chemical restraints and anti-psychotic medications. The conference also features a public lecture that will present a national perspective on elder abuse in Canada.

The objective of the conference is not just to raise awareness of these issues but also to identify steps that are or should be taken to safeguard the health, safety and well-being of residents of long term care facilities and those who care for them – both today and for the future.
