As people with HIV/AIDS age in unprecedented numbers, it is important that long-term care staff in Ontario be educated about the progression of the illness. In Ontario, there are well over 7,000 people living with HIV/AIDS over the age of 50 which means long term care homes in Ontario will soon begin to see an increase in the number of admissions for individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
Responding to this growing need, Casey House has partnered with The Rekai Centres (a long-term care facility) to develop an accessible and inclusive video teaching series. These training videos are intended to be viewed by anyone working in a long-term care setting, in all staff and volunteer capacities. The videos feature the perspective of people working in HIV/AIDS and long-term care, as well as people who are themselves living with HIV/AIDS, and their families and loved ones.
For inquiries regarding access to the videos, training opportunities for your workplace, or questions about this series, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rekai Centres and Casey House would like to acknowledge the support of the MAC AIDS Fund.
