A frequently discussed value in the provision of long-term care is ensuring that the care provided is person-centred.
Alberta’s continuing care system describes the dynamic populations found within the continuing care system in the province in their annual “Long-term Care Resident Profiles” which provide descriptions of demographics, health conditions and care and interventions. The information presented in their report is based on data collected during quarterly assessments of every resident.
Their most recent report, published in March 2016, gives a snapshot of the population found within long-term care in Alberta. They also have an infographic which highlights key points of the report.
