In this in-depth follow up piece, Olivia Earl continues to address ageism in the healthcare industry (catch up with Part 1 on a general ageism overview here). Here, she evaluates general attitudes by providers and considers the multiple barriers someone older may face in receiving healthcare. Her thoughtful writing invites us all to identify our own biases and understand injustices in our system.

This week, the new long-term care minister, Rod Phillips, announced that restrictions will be easing up in long-term care homes. As of July 7, residents can have visits with up to 10 people in an outdoor setting, and 2 visitors and 2 caregivers indoors. In late July, Ontario will move into step 3 meaning that residents won't have any limits to the number of visitors. Buffet style dining, off-site excursions, and recreational activities like dancing will resume.
