To gain greater insights into the ways family caregivers are maintaining connections with long-term care (LTC) residents, Lakehead University researchers are exploring their experiences during the pandemic.
Kathy Kortes-Miller, assistant professor in social work, is working to deepen our understanding of the questions, concerns and expectations that family and friends have of LTC, the health system and social support networks. Her partner on the project is CanAge: Canada’s National Seniors’ Advocacy Organization.
The goal is to help inform health policies that deliberately foster these connections.
