Upon admission to long-term care, clients are assessed using the Income Test calculator provided by the Department of Health. The government policy is located here.
This will help determine the cost of your board and lodgings. The rate is based on the standards set by the Provincial Department of Health and Community Services, and is based on your gross income.
Board and lodging will be billed monthly by the financial services department.
Your financial reassessment will be completed annually but can be requested at any time should your financial circumstances change.
You can find more information on the Community Support Services financial services page.
