Abstract Example

Supporting Seniors in the Community:  A Balance of Care Model

Kerry Kuluski, PhD, Health Services Research

This poster/oral presentation will describe a model called the Balance of Care which seeks to determine the appropriate balance of institutional and community-based care for frail seniors at risk of losing independence and being admitted to a long-term care facility.

In collaboration with health care managers from across the care continuum in Waterloo, Ontario, this model will be applied to the over 800 seniors currently waiting for long-term care facility placement, to assess what proportion can be diverted from the waiting list to the community with the appropriate mix of health and social care resources.
