The Living Classroom

Implementation Guide

The Living Classroom is a partnership model that integrates education into a long-term care or retirement home to support workforce development in senior living. Students, faculty, and those living, visiting and working in the home engage in a culture of shared learning. The model was first implemented in Ontario through a partnership with Conestoga College, the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging and Schlegel Villages.

“Students that we have hired [from the Living Classroom program] have been phenomenal – they get what we are going for, they understand resident-centred care, they understand interprofessional collaboration where other people, not having that kind of experiential education, are a little behind on that.” — Long-Term Care team member
