Long-Term Care

LTC homes in Ontario are funded and regulated by the provincial government. These homes cater to individuals who no longer have sufficient support to live independently in the community or for patients who may not be able to cope at home any longer after hospital discharge. Residents pay a fee for accommodation, which is determined by the government and varies based on the type of accommodation chosen  (basic/standard, semi-private, or private). Maxville Manor is a not for profit long term care home. 

Typically, residents in long-term care homes are seniors who require a higher level of physical care.  The primary objectives of long-term care are to promote independence for as long as possible and enhance the quality of life for each resident.

Here are some key aspects of long-term care homes:

  1. Personal Support Workers (PSWs): PSWs assist residents with daily tasks, including meal assistance, bathing, toileting, and grooming.
  2. Registered Nursing Staff: Registered Nurses (RNs) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) provide  illness assessment, treatments, and medication administration. Physicians collaborate with the registered nursing staff, PSWs, residents and families. 
  3. Recreation/Activity Team: team members organize social and recreational programs for residents.
  4. Dietary Support: Dietitians ensure appropriate and high-quality food for residents. The kitchen team provides meal service 3 times per day, as well as nourishment passes between meals.
