Thank you very much to both of our witnesses today. That was gripping testimony, especially from Ms. Oko, hearing about her experiences with her mother and what she had gone through.
My father died in a long-term care facility eight years ago, before COVID. Knowing the challenges that he faced in a long-term care facility, even that long ago—things have only gotten worse and worse through COVID—I really do feel for you, and can't imagine what it must have been like.
You talked about wanting to raise the profile of families and this idea of having a family council for people to listen to the concerns of residents.
Do you think that should be regulated as a part of long-term care standards? Is that needed, or is that something that the families of residents themselves have to really push for?

Thank you very much, Ms. Oko.
Hopefully, you are very pleased that our government recently launched a consultation to define seniors abuse so that they can understand it properly and come up with better legislation.
I will go to Ms. Majowski for a moment.
Of course we know that seniors can experience elder abuse in any facility—in long-term care facilities, hospitals, while they're shopping, even in their own home. In your opinion, what steps can be taken to improve the reporting of abuse of seniors?

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you very much to our witnesses today. There was a lot of good information.
Ms. Newman, I want to go back to you.
You just started, near the end of your presentation, to talk about ageism. We know that it's a long-standing issue that we've had to deal with. In your opinion, what are the best ways to counter ageism and promote age-friendly communities?

That's a very good point, and it's tragic when those decisions are made.
You have maybe considered, if I can say that, intergenerational initiatives. Are those something you think is really key here? Do we need to see more of them?

At the beginning you mentioned that you cared for three COVID survivors, so I take it the three of them had COVID.

What did you learn from that experience that would help us as we go forward, as far as how seniors with COVID are treated?

A good friend you are, and thank you so much.
Mr. Chair, do I have any more time?

I just want to thank both of the witnesses for the fact that you're working so closely with seniors. I really thank you for what you're doing and what you're able to tell us to help us with this report.
Thank you again.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to our witnesses for being here today. That is a very interesting discussion, of course, about the challenge of retaining nurses.
Sixteen per cent of nurses have said that they'll leave their jobs in the next year, and only one-quarter took time off to look after themselves. I think this speaks to the obvious issue that we have.
You mentioned the excessive shift work that many nurses are taking.
Dr. Boscart, do you have any indication of whether that would be more acute in private versus non-profit homes?

Thus, it's not only pay; it's teaching. It's making sure that they have the skills that they need.

Dr. Porter, could you comment on that?

You also, Dr. Porter, mentioned transportation. You said that if aging in place is our goal—and a lot of people now are questioning whether they'd ever want to end up in a long-term care facility—age-friendly communities are important.
What would you think we should do, as a federal government, to further that goal?

Thank you very much.

I just wanted to mention that it doesn't mean, if we increase the amount, that we have to increase it every year. Could we not, every year, look at how much is available and decide how much we're going to give out that year? That's one idea.
Certainly, I think it speaks to the fact that most people don't know where that money goes. We need to promote the program and tell people that this is how we're using the money. I think maybe we would get more.
Thank you.
