The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on Canadians, including caregivers of residents in long-term care. A caregiver (also referred to as carer and care partner) is any person who takes on a generally unpaid caring role providing emotional, physical, or practical support in response to an illness, disability, or age-related needs.

The purpose of this research project conducted by  Dr. Kathy Kortes-Miller of Lakehead University is to examine the experience of caregivers of Ontario residents in long-term care during the COVID-19 pandemic. In hopes to increase knowledge about the questions, concerns, and expectations that family and friends have of long-term care, the health system and social support networks, and develop greater insight into the ways of maintaining connection caregiving Ontarians are using during this period of physical distancing. The research team on this survey will develop recommendations informed by people who have been impacted by caregiving, isolation, grief, and loss during this time period that will directly address identified knowledge, system, and policy gaps.
