COVID-19’s Impact on Long-Term Care

resource image

Residents in Canada’s long-term care (LTC) homes have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 infections and deaths. While the pattern of infections among LTC residents mirrors the first 3 COVID-19 waves observed in the community, those in LTC experienced more COVID-19 deaths. In Canada, LTC residents accounted for 3% of all COVID-19 cases and 43% of COVID-19 deaths. This analysis, which includes data from both CIHI and the National Institute on Ageing, provides a picture of the impact the pandemic has had on LTC residents.
