Many of us have a family member or a friend who is getting ready or is already living in a long-term care facility. Among the stress of being separated due to declining health, it is important that we all understand how to advocate and express our concerns in a proactive and productive manner. This session aims to help to alleviate further stress and inform you on how to establish partnerships, share your concerns, have them heard and identify solutions when receiving care or services within an Alberta Health Services owned or contracted provider site.
