Tendercare admission is limited to those persons who have been declared eligible for admission to a Long-Term Care Facility by the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). This application provides information needed to assess the specific care that is required and to determine if needs can be met in our home.
When a bed becomes available, CCAC will contact applicants on the waiting list to make a bed offer.
Families are encouraged to visit the Tendercare prior to admission. We conduct regular tours on Tuesdays at 2:30pm weekly.
