Ontario Long Term Care Association partners with ArjoHuntleigh Canada, Cardinal Health Canada, and SCA Personal Care to advance quality of care for Ontario's seniors 

Toronto – January 16, 2017 – The Ontario Long Term Care Association is pleased to announce its continued partnership with three major industry players – ArjoHuntleigh Canada, Cardinal Health Canada, and SCA Personal Care – who are the 2017 Platinum Members of the Association’s Corporate Alliance Partnership (CAP). 

The CAP program is designed to provide a year-long platform for three commercial partners to work closely with the Association in delivering high-quality programming and educational opportunities to its membership. The program encompasses a multi-pronged, innovative approach, which allows the Association to support its members in knowledge-building and to provide learning opportunities that will ensure residents receive safe, quality care in an environment that engages abilities, respects their humanity, and promotes their comfort and well-being. 

“The CAP program was developed to provide our commercial members with a heightened opportunity to align with the Association through exclusive, customized marketing platforms throughout the year,” said Candace Chartier, Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario Long Term Care Association. “We are so pleased that ArjoHuntleigh, Cardinal Health and SCA have remained our Corporate Alliance Partners since the program’s inception in 2014. Their ongoing support allows us to succeed in our mission to support excellence in long-term care through research, leadership, analysis, advocacy, and a variety of member services.”

As the shift of care to the community continues to accelerate, the role of long-term care is changing to provide care for increasingly frail and complex residents. Now more than ever, the focus on quality improvement in long-term care is critical to our success in meeting the needs of long-term care residents, today and in the future. Along with our CAP partners, the Association is committed to working with its members on advancing the delivery of safe, quality care for Ontario's long-term care residents.
