Resident Bill of Rights Learning Module

Resident Bill of Rights Learning Module

The Residents’ Bill of Rights are an essential part of every day living in Ontario long-term care (LTC) homes and they are mandated by law in the Long-Term Care Homes Act (2007).  Learning directly from residents who live in LTC provides a deeper understanding and more thoughtful application of the 27 rights.

In this 15-minute video, viewers are introduced to OARC’s Executive Director Dee Tripp, and residents who live in LTC homes, as they express their rights and share how interactions with team members affects their lived experiences and quality of life in their respective homes.

The video presents the following information:

  • The 27 rights contained in the Residents’ Bill of Rights
  • Residents’ Councils and their role in supporting residents’ rights
  • Specific examples of ways to uphold and honour residents’ rights
  • Free resources to help you learn and share the Residents’ Bill of Rights and Residents’ Council information.

This video is appropriate for all audiences, including LTC staff/team members (current and prospective), LTC leaders/managers, placement students/volunteers, essential caregivers, contracted service providers, and residents and families– essentially any stakeholder working, living or visiting a LTC home. Please share this resource broadly!
