No cost to participate!

Mechanical equipment for transferring residents is a reality in our modern long-term care landscape. One of the main challenges in existing facilities, particularly those of a certain age, is that they were not designed with the use of transfer equipment in mind. With a great number of new builds now on the horizon in Ontario, ensuring that sufficient space for the safe and proper use of equipment needs to be integrated into the design process.  

Join us for a review of important considerations and the tools and resources available to ensure that your future caregivers have an environment that facilitates safe and efficient resident transfers and care.
