ORCA and OLTCA Join Strengths to Host the Annual Convention and Trade Show Together We Care

Hosted annually by ORCA (Ontario Retirement Communities Association) and OLTCA (Ontario Long Term Care Association), Annual Convention and Trade Show Together We Care is Canada’s largest gathering of long-term care and retirement home professionals. ORCA is a voluntary, non-profit association that represents operators of retirement homes in Ontario, they provide leadership in areas of education and training and supports members to meet provincial regulations, adopt best practices and promote quality and excellence in all areas of operation. While OLTCA is the largest association of long-term care providers in Canada and the only association that represents the full mix of long-term care operators – private, not-for-profit, charitable, and municipal. These two organizations once again joined strengths to host the Annual Convention and Trade Show Together We Care. Comprised of over exhibiting 300 suppliers, TWC entertains and educates more than 1,200 delegates including site owners, senior managers, and department heads from a cross-section of both ORCA and OLTCA.

Status Solutions discusses new initiatives designed to defeat loneliness and isolation, by connecting communities that care to empower those who need it most.

This year, more than ever the title of the Annual Convention and Trade Show “Together We Care” has a special meaning; stop by booth # 235, as Status Solutions discusses new initiatives designed to defeat loneliness and isolation, by connecting communities that care to empower those who need it most. The challenge for all that care for and about seniors is to find new and innovative solutions to increase usability, workflow and overall resident satisfaction. Status’ technology equips staff with the data they need to make quick, well-informed decisions and residents with a communication platform empowering them to engage in meaningful relationships. Through CATIE (Communication and Access to Information Everywhere), Status Solutions provides seniors and senior living operators with the tools to help residents stay connected to family, friends and the community at large; while ensuring that those in their care have the safety, security and independence that contributes to a healthy, meaningful and active life. CATIE is an always on in-room-portal that provides a simple interface to connect residents with the world around them. Residents have access to voice reply email so they can see photos from children, grandchildren, and others and record their response without having to type a single word. Streamlining communication allows staff to spend less time and energy on mundane tasks and tedious processes, in turn, increasing efficiency and focus on elevating the resident experience.

Status Solutions’ goal is to stimulate dialogue and new ideas that challenge our society, to look at retirement living as part of the greater community beyond the “bricks and mortar”.  Status looks forward to breaking down generational barriers by forging partnership between local schools and retirement communities, giving seniors and youth an opportunity to learn from one another. By forming a true partnership with customers, Status allows for and encourages continuous innovation.

This year Status Solutions is excited to be honored with the opportunity to share our vision and knowledge at the Together We Care Annual Convention and Trade Show where our General Manager, Danielle Myers will host a session titled Connecting Generations to Empower Those Who Need it Most.

This will be our 9th Together We Care event.

Status Solutions is committed to making the aging process better through innovation.  We look forward to sharing our solutions with you at this exciting event.  See you there.
