Infection Prevention and Control in Long-Term Care

This page includes tools and resources to equip those working and volunteering in long-term care (LTC) with the skills and knowledge they need to protect themselves, their colleagues, residents, family members, and community members.

The Ontario CLRI at the RIA has developed infection and prevention control (IPAC) eLearning courses for team members and essential care partners. These courses combine education on IPAC core concepts with application to LTC-specific situations and tasks.

Supporting the Mobility of Residents Living in Long-Term Care

This training video will show to new team members, students or volunteers new to long-term care or retirement homes how to support a resident to stand from a chair and walk (with and without a walker), assist a resident to sit down from a standing position, and assist a resident using a wheelchair.

The information in this video is meant to be a general overview. Team members must follow the long-term care or retirement home’s policy about if or how they can support residents living with mobility issues. Check with your main contact at your LTC home if you have any questions.
