This panel of researchers and practitioners redirects the focus away from many of the negative outcomes and experiences associated with long-term care and highlights promising practices already in place, and how to create new ones. Using the Montreal Chinese Hospital’s music therapy program as a paradigmatic promising practice, the panelists will explore the importance of the relational and cultural dimensions of care and leisure and provide novel models and practical insights into how long-term care can be tailored to better meet the needs of older adults.

Panelists include Darla Fortune, Associate Professor in Applied Human Sciences, Sandra Smele, Researcher with the Centre for Research and Expertise in Social Gerontology, Josephine Lee, Music Therapist with the Montreal Chinese Hospital, and Susannah Tam from the Montreal Chinese Hospital.
