The Living Classroom

Implementation Guide

The Living Classroom is an innovative educational experience for students whose career path will lead them to work with older adults. Personal Support Worker education is one of many Living Classroom experiences. The education program is delivered in a long-term care home, led by a post-secondary educator and involving students and those living and working in the long-term care home within a culture of interactive learning.

Who is going to be an advocate for residents and long-term care in the years to come? Our students! Those students that we mentor and support today — those are the people that will lead long-term care in the next decades. Those are the people I count on to build on what we have developed, and they will continue our work, to make sure that older adults receive the best possible quality of care and services.
