Ontario Long Term Care Association continues partnerships with Arjo Canada, Cardinal Health Canada, Essity Canada Inc. and Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation to advance quality of care for Ontario's seniors 

Toronto – January 15, 2019 – The Ontario Long Term Care Association is pleased to announce its continued partnership with Arjo Canada, Cardinal Health Canada, Essity Canada Inc. and the Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI), who continue to showcase their leadership in long-term care by renewing their Corporate and Strategic Alliance Partnership commitments in 2019.

“We are so grateful for the ongoing partnership we have with Arjo, Cardinal Health, Essity and CABHI, who have remained as our Corporate and Strategic Alliance Partners since the programs began in 2014 and 2016, respectively,” said Candace Chartier, Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario Long Term Care Association. “Their ongoing support provides us with the resources we need to succeed in our mission of being the trusted voice of a caring and compassionate long-term care sector.”

Through a multi-pronged, innovative approach, the Association’s CAP and SAP programs provide a year-long platform for three commercial partners and one strategic partner to work closely with the Association in delivering high-quality programming and educational opportunities to its membership. Offering exclusive, customized marketing platforms throughout the year, these programs are imperative in helping the Association advance its priorities and better support members in delivering safe, quality care in an environment that engages abilities, respects residents’ humanity, and promotes their comfort and well-being.

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 and innovation in long-term care is critical to our success in meeting the needs of today and tomorrow’s long-term care residents. Along with its CAP and SAP 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.
