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.
The following resources can also be used to help prepare students for an experiential learning placement in an LTC or retirement home. We recommend that students pursuing placements review these 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.
