How is a long-term care residence different from a retirement residence?
Long-term care is a legally-defined term. In Ontario, long-term care residences are licensed, monitored and regulated by the Ministry of Long-Term Care. Long-term care residences typically provide more extensive nursing, personal care and rehabilitation services than retirement residences. While residents of long-term care residences are required to pay for a portion of their accommodation, the Government of Ontario provides additional funding for the provision of care and services.
Compared to a long-term care residence, retirement residences are less extensively regulated and can cater to a wider range of lifestyles.
Those who choose this over long-term care may often require less assistance and supportive measures, such as 3 meal a day service, 24-hour nursing care or assistance with day-to-day activities. Rates can vary depending on the type of services and care, with the range of services they provide is usually covered by a resident’s fees.
