LeadingAge President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Larry Minnix will be the keynote speaker on Nov. 19 when home care providers and technology experts convene in Toronto (Vaughan), Ontario, Canada for the second annual Home Care Technology Conference (HCTC).
CAST and the International Association of Homes and Services forthe Ageing (IAHSA) are co-sponsoring the event.
Last year's Home Care Technology Conference laid the groundwork for Canada's first national survey of home care consumers.
