April 5, 2023, Assuring Human Rights for Older Persons in Long-Term Care Facilities: Lessons Learned

Official Side Event at the

UN Open Ended Working Group on Ageing 2023

Wednesday, April 5, 2023 at 13:00 New York Time

Everywhere, Covid exposed inequities and unleashed a torrent of disease and death, especially among older persons. Nowhere more than in the long term care sector, where the under-appreciation of the human rights of older persons is horrifyingly evident. With a deeper understanding, we have the opportunity to implement lessons learned to properly incorporate respect for the human rights of older persons into the evolution of long term care systems – both residential and family caregiving.
