Costs may vary depending upon your individual situation.

 For example, you may be entitled to benefits through other sources (e.g. extended health benefits, Veterans Affairs Canada) or you may have unusual expenses and be eligible for a temporary rate reduction. 

It is important to work with your health care professional to get an accurate assessment of your unique situation. Call the Home and community care access line in your community for current costs.
