The Change Foundation’s Long Term Care Roadtrip: A Snapshot

This past Fall, Change Foundation Research Associate Stephanie Hylmar travelled across Southern Ontario to provide support to individuals completing the residents’ survey portion of our Long Term Care Project. This project aims to better understand the role, functioning, impact, and leading practices of resident councils and family councils in long-term care homes in Ontario.

Stephanie provided support to over 50 individuals in six Ontario communities, logging nearly 2000km of driving in the process.

“Getting to meet so many individuals and visit distinct communities across Ontario was a great experience,” said Stephanie. “I’m glad we were able to include these responses and that so many resident voices were heard.”

Below is a snapshot of Stephanie’s trip.
