The question- of Medical Care, one of increasing priority with age, will be studied at an all day institute set for Wednesday, February 25th. The institute, orgartized by the 1,600 member Golden Age, Association, will include as speakers Robert Despres,-_president of the Quebec Health Insurance Board, and Dr. Raymond Robbilard, president of the Federation of Medical Specialists of Quebec.
The Golden Age Association, a constitAient agency of Allied JeaushV Community Services, [ls"gxtending an invitation \o senJOtielegates to attend its-iij^tuteio-the 25,000 membe^^emor Citi^ zens'Forum.
The program is organized >so that workshops will be conducted in three languages -- English, French and Yid-disli.
The committee planning the Golden Agers' Seventh Annual Members Conference, to be held at the YM-YWHA, 5500 Westbury Ave., is concerned about a number of questions, Mrs. Rose Joffe, Chairman of the Program Committee stated.
"We hope the ^-orkshops will determine how the medical profession is planning to handle the extra workload under Medicare; how the number of doctors will be increased; how patients will be assigned hospital, beds; the stage of negotiations between the province and the doctors preference for billing under medicare," said Mrs. Joffe.
Under the present arrangements for elderly people on welfare, she said, Golden Agers often are refused .services by doctors not prepared to accept government Medicaide cards. The result is desperation among some poorer senior citizens. "We hope," she added, "through out institute to do everytiiing possible to avoid such unfair conditions in the future in ailing senior citizens."
