Residential care


For adults who can no longer live safely or independently at home

Is Residential Care right for me?

It's for adults with complex health care needs requiring 24-hour professional care due to physical disability or mental or behavioural conditions, including brain injuries or dementia. Visit the Is Residential Care Right For Me page to learn more

How do I apply?

The first step to enter a publicly-subsidized Residential Care facility is for you to have a health care needs assessment completed by one of our Home Health and Community Care Case Managers. Visit the How to Access Services page to learn more. 

How do I choose the facility that best meets my needs?

The search for a Residential Care bed that best meets your needs starts as soon as the Case Manager completes your assessment. We aim to locate the first appropriate bed in your home or neighbouring community. Visit our Choosing a Residential Care Facility page to learn more.

In a Nutshell:

  • Contact your local Home Health and Community Care Office  at the central intake number

  • A Case Manager will determine your needs and eligibility

  • We aim to locate a care facility in your home or neighbouring community.

  • We will notify you when interim or preferred care facility becomes available.

  • When offered a bed in your preferred care facility, you will be expected to move with very short notice – often within 48 hours of a bed becoming available so check out some tips to help you prepare on our How Do I Access Residential Care page
