All LTC homes to receive copy of Through Our Eyes

The Ontario Association of Residents’ Councils (OARC) has received special project funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The funding allows them to provide one copy of the “Through Our Eyes” program to every long-term care (LTC) home in Ontario.

This unique program guides LTC home staff and residents to co-develop and co-facilitate education sessions about the Residents’ Bill of Rights (LTCHA 2007). Inside you will find step-by-step instructions, videos, exercises, and resources to develop the education. See the program video here.

All long-term care homes will have a copy of this program by March 31, 2018.

OARC will also hold live webinars to review the program and support long-term care homes as they work through the “Through Our Eyes” program. Sessions were be held on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 from 2:30 to 3:30 pm (session full) and Friday, June 15, from 2:30 to 3:30 pm.
