|2019 Post Event Story
The Long Term & Continuing Care Association's (LTCAM) 16th Annual Provincial Conference & Exhibition "It’s All About YOU!”" was held Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at the Victoria Inn, in Winnipeg, MB. This year throughout the day, engaging speakers provided strategic, practical information and tools to enable you in your work place to more effectively help those entrusted to your care, but also to take care of yourself in the process. It’s all about you and those you serve.

This year again, delegates were well represented with diverse backgrounds in professional and community oriented expertise. These attendees included rural and urban health professionals, CEOs, managers, and support-workers from long term and continuing care residences. Students and care advocates also attended. As always, the exhibitor hall was packed with over 90 companies introducing their innovative products and services, providing a plethora of ideas and improvements for care.
This SOLD OUT event hosted over 600 people consisting of members, speakers, exhibitors, delegates, award winners, guests, and of course the helpful volunteers and staff of Long Term and Continuing Care Association of Manitoba.
Just prior to the opening plenary, Aurele Foidart, LTCAM Board Vice-Chair, Ron Popiel, Chair of the Conference Planning Committee, and Board Director and Jan Legeros, Executive Director, Long Term & Continuing Care Association of Manitoba, thanked our 2019 Conference Partners by presenting them with beautifully imprinted glass awards, in the Exhibition Hall.

It is always a great delight to host the Awards for Excellence ceremony. This ceremony is dedicated to acknowledging all nominees as well as the Award winners. These are people who have gone above and beyond in the long term and continuing care continuum. It was an honour having Richard Cloutier from 680 CJOB co-host the Awards for Excellence with Jan Legeros, LTCAM Executive Director.
This year there were five (5) awards:
- Three Sustainability awards (sustainability gifts were made possible thanks to Azores Furniture)
Sustainability Award Winners:
- Deanne O’Rouke
- Dorothy Lapointe
- Rosalyn Cooney & Carol Gwizdak
- One Intergenerational Award - École Varennes and Riverside Lions Seniors Residences
- One Life Time Achievement Award – Hans Epp
The reason LTCAM hosts these provincial conferences annually is to inspire, educate, enlighten and nurture long term and continuing care staff and caregiving individuals. If we can achieve this as an outcome, having you leave the conference with some new "tools" that you can't wait to use the very next day with that resident that you just have not been able to connect with, then we have truly inspired you. This also supports LTCAM's primary objective; to advocate on behalf of seniors in Manitoba and the staff who serve them.
"Very well done in all aspects!!"
- Conference Delegate
Opening Keynote Speaker, Paula Morand (CEO of Paula Morand Enterprises) set the tone and challenged us all to Dream BIG, Be Bold. Each speaker that followed, shared amazing topics that not only are relevant in the day to day workplace, but provide practical and encouraging ways of engaging and helping all involved. Charleen Phelps (R.N. Consultant Teepa Snow and Positive Approach™ to Care) talked about the Living GEMS, ending the day with a topic “Until there’s a Cure, there’s Care.
Each year, we encourage our participants to complete a conference evaluation form. A special thank you to the huge number of those folks who took the time to contribute their comments and suggestions. These forms are carefully reviewed, analyzed, and used to a large extent to shape future conferences. This information not only gives us direction for next year, but encourages us to "strive for improvement" in the years to come.
