In two semesters, plus a field placement, this Ontario Graduate Certificate program will give you the transferrable business skills you need to apply your prior experience and education so that you can launch your career into the booming Retirement Home industry.
Retirement Homes are very different from Long Term Care or Nursing Homes, where support is provided on a daily basis and residents may be housed in multi-resident spaces. A Retirement Home includes multiple private residences within a single dwelling where residents live independently but interact frequently for recreation, meals and common interests - some are even like working in a resort or on a cruise ship, where the guests live year-round!
The Canadian Retirement Home industry is forecast to double in the next five years as Canada experiences a surge in aging baby boomers. This rapid expansion is creating an industry-wide need for qualified staff and retirement home managers.
Guided by industry leaders (Verve Senior Living, Chartwell Retirement Residences, Revera Retirement Living, Delmanor, Schlegel Villages, Amica Senior Lifestyles, Sienna Senior Living and others) and taught by faculty experts, courses include the foundational skills in the areas of leadership; hospitality; sales and marketing; health, wellness and recreation; food and nutrition; finance; and human resource management.
A 160-hour field placement in a retirement home community allows you to fully apply and reinforce your learning in order to launch your career.
If you are ready to prepare for an exciting role that provides just as much personal reward as career success, then apply now to the Humber Retirement Home Management Ontario Graduate Certificate Program.
