The long term care application process
Step By Step Instructions:
The application process begins by contacting your local Home Care Office. Click HERE for a list of all the Home Care Offices in Kelsey Trail Health Region.
Home Care will assign you an assessor and an assessment of your needs will be completed.
During this process, you will be able to select the facility where you would like to live. If you accept a bed that is not at your first facility of choice, your name will be placed on a regional transfer list. Click HERE for the Long Term Care Placement Brochure, which lists all the Long Term Care facilities in Kelsey Trail Health Region.
Welcome packages and tours are available at each of the facilities and may assist you in selecting your new home. Please contact the facility of your choice, for more information.
Once your assessment is completed by Home Care, your information will be presented to the Access Review Committee (ARC) who determines the appropriateness for placement. This decision will be based upon an individual’s priority of need.
When your placement is confirmed, Home Care will contact you, ask you to contact the facility to arrange a date for admission and welcome you to your new home.
Please see below for the forms that will need to be completed before moving into your new home. Along with the forms, please be sure to bring the following:
A VOID Cheque for the account you would like the payment to be withdrawn from
