Is Your Long-Term Care Home Ready to Build a Living Classroom?


Where: Webinar Cost: Free

The Living Classroom is an innovative educational experience for personal support worker (PSW) students delivered on-site in a long-term care (LTC) home. It provides a space where post-secondary educators, students and those living and working in the home engage in a culture of interactive learning. Living Classrooms address workforce recruitment and retention challenges by training future PSWs who are better prepared and more motivated to work with older adults in LTC.

This webinar is being offered in collaboration with the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging.

Learning Objectives

• Understand the benefits of the Living Classroom model.
• Learn about the 10 essential building blocks of a successful Living Classroom.
• Know how to use the self-assessment tool for LTC homes to answer the question, “ Is your LTC home ready to build a Living Classroom?”
