Odd Fellow & Rebekah Home – Rates & Fees


The Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care provides funding and sets the accommodation rates for all long-term care homes. The amount residents pay for their accommodation is called a co-payment. A maximum basic resident co-payment rate is established annually, usually to be effective on July 1st. The rates increase by the annual increase in inflation as measured by the consumer price index (CPI) increase for the preceding year.


A resident may be accommodated in a long-stay or a short-stay program. The long-stay program accommodates residents for an indefinite period of time. The short-stay or ‘respite’ program provides temporary placement for a resident for a maximum of 90 days per year. Short stay beds are intended to be used by residents who will be returning to their home at the end of each short stay.

Financial Assistance or Rate Reduction:

Residents who can no longer afford to pay the basic accommodation rate based on their net disposable income after taxes, may be eligible for a reduction in fees to reside in long-stay basic accommodation.

 

You may apply for a rate reduction in Long-Term Care Home Accommodation Fees’ through the Home Administration Office. In order to apply for assistance, a Resident is required to produce the current “Notice of Assessment” received from Revenue Canada after filing his/her Income Tax Return. A resident’s assets are not considered in determining their accommodation rate. Residents applying for a rate reduction will be income tested at time of application and usually, annually thereafter.


A waiting period may exist for rate reduced accommodations and ongoing payment is required for existing accommodation until a rate reduced bed becomes available. Residents who are approved for rate reduction cannot reside in a private room. Rate reduced beds are available in standard (two beds in a room) accommodation only.
