About the Initiative
This initiative supports workforce capacity building and fosters person-centred care through the identification, development and spread of information and resources that support diversity and inclusion in long-term care (LTC) homes. This project recognizes that care experiences can be influenced by individual circumstances, including language, ability, race, ethnicity, religion, spirituality, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation and socio-economic status. This initiative aims to educate and share resources that support LTC homes in delivering care that acknowledges resident and team member diversity.
A Supporting Diversity and Inclusion in Long-Term Care Advisory Committee and other experts, including persons with lived experience, contribute to the work of this initiative and the identification and spread of resources that support diversity and inclusion of all residents, care partners (family and friends of residents) and team members in LTC, and inform diversity across all CLRI activities.
