Looking for a long-term care home?

  • Visit the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's website. The site provides information about all long-term care homes in Ontario and their records of care.
  • Seniors and their families may visit the website as an initial step to gather details about homes they are considering.

Additionally, people should:

  • Contact their local Community Care Access Centre for information on eligibility and how to choose a home.
  • Visit a number of homes in order to determine, first-hand, which one is best suited to their needs and lifestyle.
  • Contact the home and speak with the operator or administrator regarding any questions they may have.

People who would like information mailed to them can phone the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's ACTION Line at 1-866-434-0144. They may also contact their local Community Care Access Centre to receive it.
