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.

Guidelines for Supporting Adults with a Developmental Disability in Long-Term Care Homes

About the Guidelines

The Ministry of Community and Social Services and Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care developed guidelines to support adults living with developmental disabilities who are applying to, moving into and residing in a long-term care (LTC) home. These guidelines provide important information about the developmental services sector, how to apply to LTC homes, and processes that impact LTC home residents.

The Guidelines for Supporting Adults with a Developmental Disability When Applying to, Moving Into and Residing In a Long-Term Care Home assist with improving services for adults living with a developmental disability who choose to reside in a LTC home. The guidelines outline the importance of planning, choice and consent, and for adults living with developmental disabilities to receive appropriate care and support services in LTC homes.

The collaborative creation of these guidelines and usage of them demonstrates an integrated and coordinated approach to care within and between the Developmental Services and LTC home sectors. A commitment to improving the social and health outcomes for aging adults living with a developmental disability is based on the principles of choice, community inclusion, and self-directed planning.
