The sfCare Framework, which was developed by the RGP of Toronto in collaboration with provincial stakeholders, including older adults, caregivers, and care providers, provides a foundation for achieving the best possible outcomes for older adults. The Framework’s guiding principles and defining statements collectively describe what senior friendly care looks like. The sfCare Getting Started Toolkit helps bring this foundational vision to life by providing 10 actionable recommendations and practical resources. The sfCare Getting Started Toolkit will be updated regularly with new tools and resources.

Seven Guiding Principles:

  1. Resilience, independence, and quality of life
  2. Compassion and respect
  3. Information and empowered older persons and families
  4. Person- and relationship-centered partnerships
  5. Safety and security

  7. Evidence-informed

Five Domains:

  1. Organizational Support
  2. Processes of Care
  3. Emotional & Behavioural Environment
  4. Ethics in Clinical Care and Research
