Notes
Agri-Food for Healthy Aging has developed a preliminary set of recommendations for LTC facilities for better pureed foods that provides examples for different types of food, as well as a checklist to ensure standardized texture outcomes. Although in other countries dietetics associations have guidelines for modified food textures or dysphagia diets, in Canada there are not currently any similar guidelines on the topic of food textures or consistency descriptors. The Agri-Food for Healthy Aging initiative is a collaborative research group of a number of academic institutions and health and nutrition organizations in Ontario whose aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of aging and older adults through research in agriculture, food and nutrition.

Many Canadians are juggling the demands of full or part-time employment with the need to provide regular informal care to family and friends. Caregiving can affect the well-being of employee caregivers, and lead to increased costs for their employers by impacting job performance, absenteeism and productivity. Following Budget 2014, the Government of Canada launched the Canadian Employers for Caregivers Plan (CECP) to explore ways to help employee caregivers participate as fully as possible in the workforce.

First Aid
Notes
Available free on the Internet
First aid is the provision of immediate care to a victim with an injury of illness, usually effected by a lay person, and performed within a limited skill range. First aid is normally performed until the injury or illness is satisfactorily dealt with (such as in the case of small cuts, minor bruises, and blisters) or until the next level of care, such as an ambulance or doctor, arrives. This book is a Canadian version of the original at Wikibooks. All references to protocols which do not comply with resuscitation standards in Canada have been removed. [from BCcampus OpenEd website]
