About The Event

Quebec’s second Action Plan against the Mistreatment of Older Adults (2017-2022) drew attention to the concept of “bientraitance” (good treatment) of older adults. The purpose of the research project is to better understand how good treatment is experienced by older, English-speaking adults who participate in the Senior Wellness Centres (SWC) Program supported by the Community Health and Social Services Network. Darla will share some findings from our research that help to identify what good treatment means to participants and what contributes most to their experience of good treatment. Implications for practice will also be discussed.
