Long Term Care

Long-term care facilities are designed for those who require availability of 24-hour nursing care and supervision within a secure setting. Accommodation is either private, semi-private (two people per room), or ward (three to four people per room). Meals are usually served in a central dining area, with the option of being served in your room. In addition to a dining room, long-term care facilities may offer other facilities such as attached lounges, beauty salons, gardens, etc. Rooms usually come completely furnished.

Long-term care facilities may be operated by private companies, municipal councils, or non-profit organizations. Regardless of operator, all long-term facilities must meet requirements set by the Ontario government for quality of care, lodging, and services provided.

Application to all long-term care facilities must be done through the KFL&A Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). A referral may be made by anyone as long as the person being referred is aware of the situation and the reason for the referral. Upon receiving the referral, the CCAC will send a representative to evaluate the candidate. The representative will ask the candidate (or in cases of deteriorating mental condition, the candidate's substitute decision maker or power of attorney) to pick up to three facilities in the Kingston area.

The candidate will also need to have a physical performed by his or her doctor. This information along with the CCAC's evaluation will be sent to each of the chosen long-term care facilities. Each facility then decides whether they are able to provide the necessary level of care. If they can, the candidate will be placed on that facility's waiting list. The length of the waiting lists varies greatly. In general, the waiting lists for basic accommodation are longer than those for private accommodation. Some facilities do not hold separate waiting lists. Once a candidate reaches the top of the waiting list, he or she receives an offer for accommodation. This offer can be refused if circumstances have changed, although you will then be unable to reapply for long-term care for an additional six months.

The prices for long-term care are set by the Ontario government. Currently, the rates are:

Type of Accommodation
Price
Basic accommodation
(Multiple people per room, the number of people and type of room that fit this classification varies from facility to facility)
$1,619.08 / month
Semi-private room
(Two people per room)
$1,862.41 / month
Private room
(One person per room)
$2,166.58/ month

† If the candidate's pension cannot pay the basic rate, subsidized care may be provided by the Ontario government. The facility and the candidate are responsible for setting this up. Subsidies are only available for basic accommodation.

Respite (short-term) care currently costs $34.63/day. The CCAC should be contacted for updated rates (the rates usually change on July 1st of every year). Also note that these prices are for care, food, and lodging. Other amenities—such as cable television, hairdressing, etc,—may cost extra. They also have informative pamphlets that can help you in making decisions. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's web site on long-term care also contains useful information.

*Note: These costs are current as of July 1, 2010.
