The Long Term & Continuing Care Association of Manitoba (LTCAM) is a not for profit corporation with almost 150 members, representing more than 10,000 elderly persons and staff across the continuum of care. Incorporated in 1959, we have grown to represent non-profit and private Assisted Living residences, Supportive Housing and Personal Care Home residences, spanning all regional health authorities across Manitoba. Our membership has tripled in the last few years and continues to diversify. The LTCAM has on its website, the only navigation tool to help you find the right care or home for your loved one’s needs.
For over 60 years, the Long Term & Continuing Care Association of Manitoba (LTCAM)—a non-profit, membership-based organization—has been a valued adviser and partner in the promotion of safe care and living options for seniors living in Manitoba.
Our mission has always been to improve the quality of care provided to long term and continuing care residents, and clients. The LTCAM introduced standards of care well before the provincial government outlined official standards. Each day, we care for Manitoba’s most vulnerable seniors, many of whom reside in our residences. We also work closely with provincial long-term care providers across Canada through the Canadian Association for Long Term Care, and we continue to share information and education that uses the best national evidence available to improve quality of care for residents throughout the province and Canada.
LTCAM will advise Provincial and Regional Health Authorities on matters of legislation, policy and funding that promote evidence-based decision-making in the delivery of care and services to the older adult. In partnership with like-minded organizations, LTCAM will develop and promote collective positions that identify seniors’ care and living options issues and solutions in relation to health system transformation. LTCAM will leverage our education and information activities, namely our annual provincial conference and website, by emphasizing care and living options for the older adult.
