This study was conducted in long-term care (LTC) and designated supportive living (DSL) to better understand resident and family member experiences and perceptions about public health orders and their implementation by sites during the most restrictive time of the COVID-19 pandemic (March to July 2020).
The COVID-19 Continuing Care Study results are presented at the provincial level in two reports, one report focuses on survey results from family members and the other focuses on what was heard from in-depth interviews and a survey with residents. The HQCA also produced 284 individual site-level reports for participating sites/organizations to help them determine what was working well and what could be improved in their specific care setting. More information on these reports can be obtained by contacting the site administrator.
The study was conducted in partnership with Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services.
