Libby Znaimer is joined by the Zoomer Squad including Marissa Lennox, Chief Policy Officer at CARP, David Cravit, Vice President of Zoomer Media, and Peter Muggeridge, Senior Editor of Zoomer Magazine.
In the news: the province has given the go-ahead for family members to visit their loved ones in long-term care and retirement homes. However, there will be strict guidelines for these visits, and the homes must not have outbreaks of COVID-19. The squad discusses what these guidelines look like. Also, today marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. And, Marissa details her experience testifying in front of a provincial committee regarding an omnibus bill that would make it difficult to launch class-action lawsuits against long-term care homes.
