The Living Classroom

Who We Are

The Living Classroom is a new kind of 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.

Unlock the potential. Open the door to the living classroom.

If we don’t have passionate people in that next generation of professional health care providers, we will fail to grow leaders in Long-Term-Care and as a result we will lose the voice of Long-Term-Care. 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.
