Who do I contact to apply for long term care?

Please contact the Community Care Access Centre (C.C.A.C.) for Huron County at 519.527.0000 or 1.800.267.0535.

How much does it cost?

All long-term care home residents are required to contribute towards the cost of accommodation and meals, which is called a co-payment fee.

The amount of your co-payment fee is based on whether you are in a basic, semi private or private room. Regardless of room, all residents are entitled to the same level of care. 

The Ministry of Long-Term Care sets maximum co-payment fees each year, which are standard across all long term care homes in Ontario. Click here to see the most up to date co-payment fees: Paying for long-term care | ontario.ca

What are the rooms like?

Long term residents at the Braemar have their choice of spacious private rooms or semi-private rooms, shared with one other resident. All rooms have two-piece en-suite bathrooms. Large windows overlook scenic, well-manicured grounds, and the beautiful countryside of Huron County.

What furniture is there and what furniture can I bring?

The rooms are furnished with a bed and mattress, a bedside table, an armchair and a closet with shelves. We do encourage residents to bring their own personal furniture, pictures, television, telephone, radio or CD player, lamp, etc. to give their room a “home-like” atmosphere. Upholstery with a wipeable surface is recommended. We ask that you check with the Environmental Services manager prior to bringing in any electrical devices; all electrical devices must be CSA approved.

What are the visiting hours?

As part of our focus on quality of life for long term care residents, we encourage family and friends to visit as often as possible. Most people visit between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM.

Can family and/or friends join residents for a meal?

Absolutely! If family and/or friends would like to join a resident for a meal, as a courtesy to our cook, we request at least 2 hours in advance notice of the meal. Guest meal prices are listed below and include taxes where applicable. (Please note that prices are subject to change.)
