The Ontario CLRI at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging has launched new career videos to supplement our LTC career profile web pages. These videos are intended for students, educators, and anyone interested in pursuing a career in LTC, where you can build lasting and meaningful relationships with residents and have a fulfilling career.
Why work in LTC?
- It is a chance to create meaningful relationships
- You are making a difference in someone’s life every day
- Jobs are high in demand
- There are opportunities for further learning and development for upward mobility or moving into other roles
- A chance to work with people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences
We know there is a need for more resources to profile career options in long-term care to the younger generations. These videos will help educate students and job seekers about various careers within LTC.
What careers are featured?
These new career videos cover careers in LTC in areas beyond those traditionally associated with the sector:
- Social work
- Food services
You can view the new videos on YouTube or on the LTC career profile pages for each corresponding career option.
We will be adding a music therapy career profile shortly, and you can watch the music therapy video here!
Our career videos have received thousands of views and we hope will continue to spotlight opportunities in LTC to the future workforce!
