Last Call for PSW Education Fund – Enroll Now!

Posted On: February 10, 2022

Don’t miss a chance to get high-quality training for your LTC teams through the Personal Support Worker Education Fund!

The Fund gives LTC homes tuition and backfill for the virtual delivery of two excellent education programs to enhance person-centred care in LTC, a priority identified in the recommendations from the Ontario Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission:

  1. The Excellence in Resident-Centred Care (ERCC) provides team members with practical skills in person-centred care and includes a focus on infection control. It was co-developed by Conestoga College and the RIA. Homes must enroll by March 30, 2022.
  2. LIVING the Dementia Journey (LDJ) is an award-winning, evidence-informed training program for those who support people living with dementia. Participants gain awareness and understanding that changes not only the way they view dementia but the way they support people living with it. The program was created by the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging’s Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program in collaboration with people living with dementia and their care partners. Homes must enroll by March 25, 2022.

LTC homes can enroll to receive funding for either or both education programs. Virtual training sessions run until March 31, 2022.

Open to all frontline team members.
