Funding renewal supports Conestoga delivery of training in long-term care

December 5, 2019

Conestoga College has announced that it will continue to offer its Excellence in Resident-Centred Care (ERCC) course in partnership with the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI), thanks to the extension of $4M in funding provided to the Personal Support Worker Education Fund. The training will allow the college to continue to provide support to long-term care homes through the ERCC course, which provides personal support workers who complete the ERCC training course with the skills and information necessary to deliver the ERCC Team Member Course to their colleagues. “We are thrilled the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Long-Term Care continue to invest in ERCC and see the value this training brings to long-term care organizations across Ontario," said Conestoga Director of Seniors Care, Schlegel Centre for Advancing Seniors Care Michelle Heyer.
