Personal Care Home Placement
A personal care home may be the appropriate care setting when:
- You can no longer remain safely at home even with home care services; and
- The services you need can be provided more effectively, safely and economically in a personal care home.
The application form for personal care home admission is provided by your case coordinator and is signed by you. The form includes medical, nursing and other information about you. Once completed, the application is reviewed to decide whether you are eligible for admission to a personal care home.
There may be a waiting period before you are admitted to the personal care home. During this time, home care services may be provided to you as necessary.
If you require admission immediately or are in hospital awaiting placement, you may be asked to accept placement in a different care facility until you can be admitted to the personal care home of your choice.
