These are privately owned and operated residential homes for seniors and older adults who need assistance with daily living. Individuals who are admitted to personal care homes do not require on site health or nursing services but may require the service of a visiting professional. These homes are licensed by the regional health authorities.
Any individual wishing to reside in a personal care home must be assessed as appropriate by staff of the regional health authority. If a subsidy is requested, a financial assessment is completed to determine the amount of subsidy that may be available.
For further information on personal care homes contact your regional health authority.
