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

Through Our Eyes

Working together, this unique program guides long-term care home teams of staff and residents to co-develop and co-facilitate education sessions about the Residents’ Bill of Rights (LTCHA 2007). The program provides educators with a step-by-step guide, videos, exercises and resources to develop the education.
