A new rate structure for residential care services was introduced in January 2010. The increased revenues from the new rates will be invested to improve quality of care. For more information see the Ministry of Health Servies Residential Client Rate Structure page.
Monthly residential care rates are based on 80% of your after-tax income; minimum and maximum rates apply. The monthly rate contributes to the cost of providing the service.
The Ministry of Health Services allows facilities to apply additional charges for optional services. This includes, but is not limited to, hairdressing, cable, and telephone services.
Services and charges may vary between settings. Facility staff will inform you about these fees before you move in and must have your written consent.
