Accommodations (Long-Term Care)
Long-term care services are delivered in both long term care homes (nursing homes) and in some hospital/health centres with combined long term and acute care services across Newfoundland and Labrador. All facilities provide 24 hour nursing care plus varying degrees of medical, rehabilitative, social work, pastoral care, dietetic, pharmaceutical, palliative care, respite and recreation programs. Some facilities maintain specialized programs and units for groups with special needs (i.e. Alzheimer disease).
Admission to a long term care bed is based on an assessment conducted by staff of the regional health authorities. A financial assessment is also completed to determine if and how much the individual must pay.
Long term care services are also available through privately owned and operated personal care homes.
Personal Care Homes
These are privately owned and operated residential homes for seniors and older adults who need assistance with daily living. Individuals who are admitted to personal care homes do not require on site health or nursing services but may require the service of a visiting professional. These homes are licensed by the regional health authorities.
Any individual wishing to reside in a personal care home must be assessed as appropriate by staff of the regional health authority. If a subsidy is requested, a financial assessment is completed to determine the amount of subsidy that may be available.
For further information on personal care homes contact your regional health authority.
