Questions about admissions and availability?
Once the decision has been made to seek and select a long term care facility, the rest of the process can vary depending on where you live in Canada. The first thing you’ll need is a referral from the appropriate government agency. These government agencies will lay out your available choices based on your care needs, help arrange for the move to a long term care home, and evaluate your eligibility for government-funded services and support.
