Calling All Students: The Time to Care is Now
The Ontario Long Term Care Association launched Link2LTC powered by Tazwiz (ltc.tazwiz.com) as a sector-wide solution to the critical need for staff – exacerbated by COVID-19.
Ontario’s long-term care homes, and qualified students, will now be connected directly for roles like the Resident Support Aide to support nurses and personal support workers so they can focus on delivering direct care. There are 30 job opportunities already posted, providing qualified students with professional experience – while rallying around the most vulnerable at the time they need it most.
All students will be actively screened for COVID as part of the application process, as well as on-site by long-term care homes, in addition to a required Vulnerable Sector Screen. There will also be orientation and critical training, including infection prevention and control protocols and procedures.
Ontario’s health students are uniquely qualified to support long-term care homes and would benefit from these paid opportunities. The time to care is now.
