Empowering Residents and Secondary School Students Through Experiential Learning in LTC Homes

Partnerships between long-term care (LTC) homes and secondary schools create opportunities to reduce negative perceptions and improve well-being through positive experiences. Experiential Learning in Long-Term Care: A Guidebook for Building Partnerships Between Secondary Schools and Long-Term Care Homes guides LTC homes and secondary schools through the process of building partnerships and implementing placement opportunities for students. These opportunities help build capacity within homes, and support a recruitment strategy for the future LTC workforce by generating interest in LTC careers.
