During the past two years, long-term care homes and seniors’ homes (assisted living facilities) have faced increased challenges. Drastic changes had to be implemented to ensure the safety and well-being of the residents and their close ones. This had a long-lasting impact on the financial status of the retirement homes. The vast majority of them had to introduce heightened Infection Prevention and Control procedures. Over 86% of the facilities reported staff-related challenges, such as employees not showing up for work, staffing shortages, not enough amount of protective equipment, etc. Personnel reported being severely overworked and the rate of mental health problems amongst employees has been raised significantly. Even though the pandemic is coming to end, the retirement facilities still feel the echoes of the 2 years-long impasse.
