New Podcast Episode on Residents' Rights

October 20, 2022

For decades the Consumer Voice has designated October as Residents’ Rights Month as a way to honor residents living in long-term care. This month is an opportunity to focus on the commitment to recognize the value of each resident and the importance of treating every resident with dignity and respect.

In this episode, join us as we speak about this year’s Residents’ Rights Month theme, Inspiring Unity within Our Community. Lori Smetanka, Executive Director at Consumer Voice, and Jocelyn Bogdan, Senior Policy Specialist at Consumer Voice discuss why having a community is important, how residents can exercise their rights around their community, and examples of ways residents, families, and staff can help build a community for residents living in long-term care.
