In Ontario alone, the population of people over the age of 85 is set to double over the next 12 years. Currently, there are more than 40,000 people on the waitlist for long-term care in Ontario, while the system is facing significant staffing shortages. It’s time we develop new strategies for meeting the needs of our aging population. In this episode, Donna is joined by John Yip, the president and CEO of SE Health, a large home and community care organization that serves people in Canada and abroad. John brings an extraordinary skill set as a consultant, operator, leader and innovator in our healthcare system, and he has a fascinating perspective to share on how we are going to respond to the challenges our system is facing as the baby boomer generation continues to age. During the episode, John shares his thoughts about how we can strategize to meet the needs of this aging demographic, the benefits of taking a population-based approach and most importantly, how we can begin to think differently about the ways we deliver care.
