Walk in My Shoes - Cross Sector Staff Exchanges

This cross sector training project, developed by the Toronto Regional Committee on Aging and Developmental Disabilities (TPADD), provides orientation experiences for staff in one sector who want to learn about the other service sector.  TPADD describes it as “an important new opportunity to build bridges and bridge gaps in support of older adults with a developmental disability.”

The program is made available from time to time to all long term care and developmental service agencies in Toronto.  There is no cost to register and agencies are matched to allow them to arrange staff exchange visits at mutually convenient times.
