Residential Care Services

What is Residential Care and who is it for?

Residential Care facilities provide 24-hour professional care and supervision to adults in a supportive, secure environment. Publicly subsidized Residential Care Services are available to adults with complex medical and cognitive care needs and an assessed and urgent need for 24-hour care. Services are aimed at meeting the complex health needs of those admitted to a facility and include:

      • Accommodation
      • 24-hour nursing care
      • Other professional services such as nursing, physical therapy, social work and nutritional support
      • Hospitality services  (meals, housekeeping, recreational activity programs, emergency response)
      • Personal care assistance
      • End-of-life care.
