Find a list of retirement homes

There can hardly be a true value placed on a quality nursing home environment, where other residents are happy and lively, the facilities are well staffed and the building is designed with innovative and progressive features and amenities. In fact, the quality of the environment should perhaps be your only consideration as you choose among Ontario long-term care. These homes, as those listed below, pride themselves on providing the finest in a nursing care environment.

Ontario nursing homes: what you can expect

Some of the nursing you can find in the Ontario homes listed here would include:

Home health care: several Ontario homes allow residents to hire in-home help with cleaning or other small daily tasks, or they hire this out themselves.

Physical therapy can include onsite fitness programs that help rehabilitate residents who may have been physically injured or these programs may include regular physical fitness programs open to all elderly residents.

Occupational therapy is focused on helping nurse patients back to health if they have been hit by a stroke or other health problems. Proper care in an excellent environment can help patients recover full health.

Numerous Ontario nursing homes have been shown to help victims of stroke (for example) recover quickly and get back to enjoying life; David Wagener's stroke recovery story is one among many. Physiotherapy for seniors, as offered in these homes has been demonstrated to be effective in returning the elderly to a full life. Many more retirement homes today are opening themselves up to convalescent care stays as an important service. 

Who is eligible for long-term care?

  • Individuals requiring 24-hour nursing care and daily personal support services
