Resources for Long-Term Care During COVID-19

Posted On: March 30, 2020

During this pandemic the Ontario CLRI is working remotely to continue supporting long-term care homes across the province to enhance the health and well-being of team members and residents. 

We are aware that COVID-19 presents a significant challenge to LTC homes. There are key stakeholders in the sector already mobilizing to support care homes (see list below) and we are working with them where opportunity arises to collaborate and support.

The Ontario CLRI is also organizing our activities to respond to the change in priorities for LTC homes to help fill gaps that may exist during the pandemic. We have already begun the development and sharing of new and existing resources to support the psychosocial needs of the LTC workforce:

Ontario CLRI continues to collaborate with digital health services that can help alleviate pressures on hospitals during COVID-19. For example, the Ontario CLRI is coordinating with the eConsult Centre of Excellence to promote the new COVID-19 specialty group available for LTC primary care providers to ask both patient-specific and population-based questions.

We recognize this is a developing situation and needs will evolve as the pandemic runs its course; Ontario CLRI is committed to remaining flexible to respond to the needs in the LTC sector as they arise.
