Admission Process - Long Term Care

For all long-term care homes in Ontario, including The Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre, coordinate admissions through the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), which provides in-home health and support services, and coordinates the placement of clients into long-term care homes.

Once you have decided to go forward with your application, the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) will assign you a Case Manager to guide you in gathering the medical and personal information required for admission. Your Case Manager may offer help, if you need it, in choosing a home. The Case Manager can give you estimates on wait times for your choice of facility.
