“Older adults are often victims of our impersonal healthcare system,” said Gibbs. “Unreliable financial incentives, social support, and assistance often discourages seniors from getting the support they need. Can this be fixed? Yes! We have to first shift the culture of facility-based treatment and aim to provide social care that helps provide a better life for seniors living with chronic health issues. My wish is to provide a better life to all seniors and fight for policies that help give them the opportunities to do so.”
