    • Re-Imagining Long-Term Care Homes

      Re-imagining long-term care homes – the new normal.

      Long-term care homes are vulnerable as a result of a global pandemic. The restrictions required to mitigate COVID-19 will continue for the foreseeable future.

      Facilitated by Tanya Chapman, this series of three 90-minute free online workshops will assist your team to develop an action plan for the new normal; and to think through the design, structure and access to long-term care.

      Your new plan will help you to:

      • Define the new normal: how you will deliver service in a different way, understand the gaps between “now" and the “new normal”
      • Transition to the new normal: develop a detailed action plan, determine how to manage the change
      • Monitor the new normal: know what and how to monitor, when to adjust again, and who is involved

      You will leave with a toolkit and an actionable plan to address your individualized needs.

      Online Workshop - 4.5 hours (3 * 1.5 hour)
