LTCCC Fact Sheets provide brief summaries of relevant standards and tips on how the standards can be used to support better care and quality of life. Also included here are several FAQ Sheets with examples of Frequently Asked Questions and scenarios that residents might face in regard to a particular resident right or standard of care. [Note: We have not developed a FAQ Sheet for every resident right covered in the Fact Sheets but, rather, only in cases where we thought the supplementary discussion might be useful to support resident-centered advocacy.]

We welcome you to use, copy and adapt these materials in your efforts to improve care. For basic information on selected resident care concerns, please visit our Handouts page. For more in-depth information, please see our Issue Alerts or our Reports pages.
