Personal Care Home Placement
It is the right time for you to consider moving into a Personal Care Home (PCH) when you can no longer safely live at home with Home Care services or your care needs would be better met in a PCH. The application form for PCH admission is provided by your case coordinator and is signed by you. The form includes medical, nursing and other information about you. Once completed, the application is reviewed to decide whether you are eligible for admission to a PCH.
There may be a waiting period before you are admitted to the PCH; this varies depending on each PCH. During this time, home care services may be provided to you as necessary. If you require admission immediately, or if you become ill and are in hospital awaiting placement, you may be asked to accept placement in a different care facility until you can be admitted to the PCH of your choice.
