Through Our Eyes

OARC’s Through Our Eyes: Bringing the Residents’ Bill of Rights Alive

Working together, this unique program guides long-term care home team members and residents to co-develop and co-facilitate education sessions about the Residents’ Bill of Rights (FLTCA 2021) – from the perspective of residents!

The program provides educators with a framework to follow and suggestions for exercises and resources to help you to develop the education. Consider using this education to support and inform residents about their rights; supplement your home’s mandatory training on the Residents’ Bill of Rights; and/or use it to elevate your current team member orientation/onboarding program.

Note: The contents of our guide reflect long-term care legislation that has been further updated. The program materials are still applicable, however, we invite you to refer to the expanded Residents’ Bill of Rights, asyou now have 29 Residents’ Rights in the Fixing Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2021.

OARC and RNAO Working Together

The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario and OARC are working together to spread the word about the OARC’s Through Our Eyes program and how well it fits into the Person and Family Centered Care Clinical Best Practice Guidelines. Together, these programs work to complement evidence-based recommendations and facilitate participation from residents, family members and the whole home as they improve residents’ and families’ experience of health care and the Residents’ Bill of Rights (FLTCA, 2021). Click here to learn more.
