The Admissions Process


We understand that the transition into a long-term care home is a change in your lifestyle, whether coming from a hospital or the community, and we will strive to help make it as smooth as possible.

In Ontario, the local Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) coordinates all applications to long-term care homes.

Here are the three main steps in the process:

  1. CCAC will assess your needs to ensure long-term care is the right care setting for you.
  2. CCAC provides you with lists, including wait times, and other basic information about the homes in your community.
  3. CCAC can help you choose and apply to a maximum of five homes.
