Report explores better built-environment for long-term care homes

The University of Toronto (UofT) Centre for Design + Health Innovation released a new, comprehensive study, “Reimagining Long-Term Care Architecture in Post-Pandemic Ontario—and Beyond” that explores how the built environment can better support long-term care (LTC) communities. According to the report, supported by the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) and consulting firm Jacobs Canada, the COVID-19 pandemic had disproportionate impacts within Ontario’s LTC sector, exposing many structural vulnerabilities within these congregate facilities. Unless steps are taken to update standards and modernize design guidelines to better align to current and emerging clinical approaches, such vulnerabilities will remain largely unresolved—even in newly built LTC homes.
