Training for Students In or Preparing for LTC Placements

It is important for students to be prepared before beginning their placement in a long-term care (LTC) home. In addition to training provided by the school, the placement supervisor at the LTC home will also identify necessary training and resources for the student.

We recommend that students review the following resources and all of the recommended training material provided by the Ontario CLRI and the long-term care or retirement home they are involved with.

The information in the below resources are meant to be a general overview. Students must follow the long-term care or retirement home’s policies and check with their main contact at the home whenever they have questions.
