Care and support - Housing options - Long-term care homes

The idea of moving to a long term care home often ignites fear in those affected by dementia. Yet, in many instances, the care one receives in a long term care home can ensure the health and safety of persons with dementia in later stages of the disease and reduce the stress some care partners experience in their care roles.

Moving to a long term care home is a good option for you if you need more help with your daily living tasks, and prefer living in a secure setting with nursing care available to you 24 hours a day. There are a number of services offered by a long term care home including:

  • Furnishing
  • Meals
  • Housekeeping
  • Medical and personal care
  • Activities
