Tom’s account offers a unique view of the extraordinary and heartbreaking journey experienced in senior living, particularly long-term care, during the first two waves of the pandemic. It provides insight into the daunting challenges faced by the organization and sector throughout the crisis, and the thinking behind Revera’s decisions to help address them. It also discusses clear gaps in the system that the pandemic revealed.

“The pandemic has been the most difficult, tragic period of our collective experience, and for seniors’ care, has shown areas, like staffing and capacity, where profound improvements must be made,” said Tom. “We owe the best to the seniors of today and tomorrow, and we owe the best to the incredibly compassionate and dedicated frontline employees who have shown such courage through the past two years. They are true heroes.”
