Webinar Recording – Supporting families in long-term care: exploring family and staff perspectives
In November 2017, Family Councils Ontario launched the “Supporting Families Project”. This project was brought about in response to growing concerns from both service providers (Social Workers and Social Service Workers) and caregivers about the availability and offerings of social service supports for families in Long Term Care. Watch this webinar recording as it reviews the key findings from this research project and discuss opportunities for improvement in the provision of social service supports. This webinar is designed for both families and long-term care home staff. If you would like to read the full FCO report and findings, visit the FCO website.
