Continuing care and supportive living centres have fees called accommodation charges. If the person is waiting in an Acute Care hospital, they are also requied to pay accommodation charges. There may be other fees for services such as telephone, laundry etc. In Designated Supportive Living Level 4, residents may need to provide their own furniture, health supplies (e.g., incontinence and diabetic supplies), and medications.
Fee reduction may be available. If you qualify as low-income, you can apply for help with accommodation charges.
