Abstract:

Living through the COVID-19 crisis, Dementia care in Healthcare Crisis project highlights existing challenges faced by dementia patients in the long-term care system. Through this study, the field of study is explored using foresight methods to better understand future care provisions in the event of impending pandemics.
The project empathizes with patients in the Ontario system of long-term care while being cognizant of the dilemmas that emerge as a result of healthcare crisis. It reviews current literature and emerging forces of change to understand how things can develop in the future. With scientists assuring the occurrence of future pandemics as a result of globalization and migration, it is assumed the next pandemic will disturb the global environment 15 years into the future, in the year 2035. This project aims to develop alternative future scenarios that discover potential ideas which need to be further worked upon to provide the best form of care for dementia patients.
