February 2, 2016

Check out the latest episode of Encore by Boomerswork.com on 105.9 Seaside FM hosted by Costas Halavrezos!

The news came in November that the Victorian Order of Nurse (VON) would be closing down operations in all provinces with the exception of Ontario and Nova Scotia. Now as suitable replacements are being sought out, seniors are wondering how the many services of the VON will be undertaken by new health care professionals. Anne Sutherland Boal, CEO of the Canadian Nurses Association, joins us on Encore to discuss the VON closures and the challenges in presents going forward.

Enjoy the show and be sure to join us for the next episode when we’ll discuss the private sponsorship groups accepting Syrian refugees across Nova Scotia.
