Also known as “nursing homes,” LTC homes are subsidized residential homes that typically provide higher levels of personal care and support than what may be provided in a retirement home. These types of homes are for people who need 24-hour nursing care and supervision within a secure setting. In Ontario, all admissions to long-term care homes are coordinated through Home and Community Care Support Services.
