Fees for Long Term Care in Ontario

15 May

In Ontario, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care pays for the care an individual recieves while living in a long term care home. But residents are responsible for accommodation costs which are standard across the province. This means the cost of a bed in a well-run or newer home is exactly the same as the cost for a bed in a poorly run or delapadated older home.

As of  July 1, 2012 the rates for subidized beds in Ontario are:

Type of Accommodation Daily Rate Monthly Rate
Long-Stay Basic $55.04 $1,674.14
Long-Stay Semi-Private
Residents admitted to a newer LTC home
$64.04 $1,947.89
Long-Stay Semi-Private
Residents admitted to an older LTC home
$63.04 $1,917.47
Long-Stay Private
Residents admitted to a newer LTC home
$74.79 $2,274.86
Long-Stay Private
Residents admitted to an older LTC home
$73.04 $2,221.64
Short-Stay $35.63 N/A

If  the person you are concerned about is deemed eligible for a long-term care home, they can not be refused regardless of whether they can afford the fees. If you are considering long term care for a loved one and have not started the process already, you will need to start by contacting your local  CCAC.
