For more than 45 years, the Association has had the privilege of being able to recognize outstanding long-term care staff who provide quality care to residents across the province, as without their continuous hard work, innovation and dedication, excellence in long-term care would not be possible. We also proudly reward member homes, commercial members, volunteers and residents who inspire and drive quality care forward each and every day.

Better Seniors' Care: It's Time

Ontario’s long-term care homes are finding themselves increasingly constrained by a system designed for yesterday. It is leaving them ill-equipped to meet the growing needs and numbers of today’s seniors, let alone those that they will be asked to care for tomorrow. Visit us at BetterSeniorsCare.ca to learn more about how the government and homes can work together to build the capacity for care.
