B.C. ombudsperson to speak at Ridge Meadows Seniors' Activity Centre

The Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Katzie Seniors’ Network and the Ridge Meadows Seniors’ Society have arranged for B.C.’s provincial ombudsperson to speak about her second report, “The Best of Care: Getting it Right for Seniors in British Columbia.”

B.C. Ombudsperson Kim Carter released the final report on her province-wide investigation into “systemic issues” in home and community care in February. Her report provides a precise and doable road map for improving senior’s care in B.C. Specifically, it outlines 176 recommendations for improving the quality, accessibility, and accountability of our seniors care system.

Carter will be speaking about her recommendations from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24, at the Ridge Meadows Seniors’ Activity Centre, 12150 224th Street, Maple Ridge.
