Rates

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) provides funding for Long-Term Care Homes. The amount paid by residents for their accommodation is called a “co-payment.”

The monthly rate or “co-payment” amount is determined by the length of time a person stays in a Home. Long Stay refers to permanent accommodations for an indefinite period of time.

On July 1, 2016 basic and preferred accommodation rates in long-term care (LTC) homes increased moderately, consistent with recent inflationary increases. The increase in rates to all types of accommodation based on a residents’ date of admission to the bed will help cover the rising costs of meals and accommodation.

NOTE: “Newer beds” are beds classified as “NEW” or “A” according to ministry design standards. “Older beds” refer to beds classified as “B”, “C”, “Upgraded D” or “D” according to ministry design standards.

Optional services (e.g. cable TV or hairdressing) can be purchased for an additional fee. Some long-stay residents in basic accommodation may be eligible for a rate reduction.
