This Information is care of The Ontario Seniors' Secretariat
ADULT LIFESTYLE COMMUNITIES
These communities provide independent living residents for retirees or semi-retirees. Your local real estate agent can help you find an adult lifestyle community.
LONG-TERM CARE HOMES
Long-term care homes are designed for people who need help with daily activities, supervision in a secure setting and/or access to 24-hour nursing care. They are also known as nursing homes, municipal homes for the aged or charitable homes for the aged. This link will take you to the Ontario Long Term Care Association. The Association’s member homes are funded and regulated by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
Retirement homes are private businesses that sell various combinations of accommodations from shared rooms to large apartments as well as support services and personal care. The Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority licenses and inspects the province’s retirement homes and maintains a public register of all homes that have been granted or have applied for a license.
