Celebrating 10 years of student partnerships and geriatric learning excellence!
Join us in our newly redesigned virtual hybrid Interprofessional Internship! Engage with your peers in facilitated sessions, project work and an online game! All Ontario healthcare professions students are welcome to apply for this paid internship.
Interns have the opportunity to:
Gain exposure to the long-term care sector;
Enhance knowledge, skills, and attitudes in aging and leading clinical gerontological practice;
Apply clinical knowledge and skills in simulated care scenarios;
Rehearse interprofessional geriatric practice competencies;
Analyze current practice challenges;
Develop and apply design-thinking skills in the creation of a sustainable, practice innovation;
Exercise professionalism and goal orientation.
These objectives are supported through facilitated discussions with Baycrest leaders and experiential partners; collaborative, capstone innovation project; reflective learning exercises; hybrid-simulation care scenarios; and game-based learning.
Open to students and recent graduates of post-secondary healthcare profession programs, including: nursing, practical nursing, medicine, pharmacy, social work, psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, kinesiology, food and nutrition, therapeutic recreation, optometry, dentistry, speech language pathology, audiology, health sciences, and health studies. This exciting opportunity enables interns to explore a future in older adult health care, network with future and current healthcare providers, and shape their current practice.
“This internship is an amazing opportunity for students to gain professional skills and knowledge that is applicable to any setting in health care. I hope to use these skills to be a health advocate for the geriatric population in my future career!” – 2022 Internship alumnus

Seniors Services and Long-Term Care (SSLTC) at the City of Toronto recognizes and celebrates the diversity and lived experiences of 2SLGBTQI+ seniors. With close collaboration from community members, service providers, advocates, and allies, SSLTC has released a revitalized 2SLGBTQI+ Tool Kit – Leading & Learning with Pride.
This resource include useful examples, insights, guidance, and resources to support providers throughout the care continuum to provide respectful, inclusive, and affirming care to 2SLGBTQI+ seniors.

This revitalized Tool Kit strives to:
Advance respectful, inclusive and affirming care for 2SLGBTQI+ seniors by: building individual knowledge and skills among SSLTC staff and other service providers in the delivery of support to 2SLGBTQI+ seniors; and building organizational capacity among SSLTC and other seniors support organizations in the creation of inclusive environments for 2SLGBTQI+ seniors
Reduce stigma, discrimination, and other barriers in LTC, healthcare, retirement, homecare, and community-based services for 2SLGBTQI+ seniors
Meaningfully improve the lives of 2SLGBTQI+ seniors by treating them with empathy, compassion, and dignity
From March to May 2022, the Ontario CLRI at Bruyère hosted three virtual sessions to provide a flexible, supportive, and interactive space for participants to be introduced to a particular ‘slice’ of the topic of cultural responsiveness, hear about a case example that highlights the content introduced in the session and engage in discussion about integrating learnings around culturally responsive care to the case example.
The Culturally Responsive Palliative Care in LTC – Case-Oriented Learning Session Series is part of our Collaborative Project to Sustain a Palliative Approach to Care in Long-Term Care. Team members that attended the sessions can refresh their learning with the webinar recordings below, and team members that missed the event now have access to this resource to support their continued learning!
Land acknowledgements are an important piece of reconciliation in the context of providing care to Indigenous people and our broader work towards cultural safety.
This Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Guiding Framework developed by Behavioural Supports Ontario can support the incorporation of land acknowledgements into meetings and events. It also includes particular considerations for individuals and organizations (in particular considerations around dementia, older adults and mental health), resources for further learning and other ways to promote reconciliation.
