Specific issues discussed include: the maintenance of public funding for medically necessary services; the definition of what is medically necessary; the allocation of adequate resources to community-based services; monitoring and evaluating the effects of private payments for health services; and ensuring quality and accountability in the delivery of community and institutional care. The paper aims to identify what mix of public and private care should be maintained in the Canadian health system if that system is to continue to offer universal access to quality care for Canada's seniors

5 editions published in 1993 in English and French and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the six main categories of life-course events and experiences that have the greatest impact on women's senior years. It first looks at the effect of these experiences on women who were born during the first quarter of this century. Based on information about how these experiences are changing, the report then speculates on how the situation of future cohorts of senior women may differ. These experiences include family life, health, living arrangements, education, employment and economic security. The report also includes a subjective dimension illustrating how women see the impact of experiences on their lives, thanks to the informal consultations carried out by Council members. Recommendations addressed to individual women, society in general, governments, community agencies, educational institutions, employers and researchers conclude the paper
