Residents’ Council During Outbreaks

RESIDENTS’ COUNCILS: CONSIDERATIONS AND STRATEGIES FOR LONG-TERM CARE HOMES DURING OUTBREAKS

RESIDENTS’ COUNCILS ARE ESSENTIAL:

Armed with knowledge and the proper personal protective equipment we can maintain Residents’ Councils’ operations in long-term care during outbreaks. Residents’ Councils play an essential role in every long-term care home. With some modification and creativity, residents can continue their structured outlet for peer support and sharing and their legislated safe space for asking questions, raising concerns and engaging in home operations.

To assist you in the re-convening of Residents’ Council, OARC has developed a guidance document that is designed to ignite conversation, planning and teamwork as you move forward with Residents’ Council.  To access the Guidance Document click here: http://www.ontarc.com/tools/20200831RCOutbreakGuidance.pdf

This guidance document was created in consultation with Resident Leaders, Residents’ Council Assistants and Administrators.  It is based on their lived experience, direct feedback and promising practices and is intended to help residents and their home teams to take the safe and necessary steps to move forward in our current pandemic and beyond.
