Rideaucrest Home is our non-profit long-term care facility with 170 beds. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of those who need long-term support in a caring community where everyone's voice is valued, and dignity is respected. 

Each long-term care service provider is required to create an accountability agreement, known as an LSAA, with Home and Community Care Support Serivces (HCCSS). This agreement outlines how the HCCSS will fund the home and the performance expectations in return for that funding. It aligns with Ontario's quality transformation agenda in the long-term care sector, emphasizing continuous quality improvement and efficient delivery of high-quality health services for all Ontarians. 

Room Types 

We provide different types of rooms to meet the needs of your family member. We encourage Rideaucrest residents to decorate their rooms as they wish to showcase their own tastes, preferences and personalities. 

Basic and semi-private rooms 

The basic and semi-private rooms share the similar layouts. Each room features a spacious closet, a bedside table, a chair and an electric bed with a mattress, pillows and linens. The bathroom is shared with a neighbour and is accessible from both sides. It also includes separate cupboards to store person items. 

Private rooms 

Private accommodations are a bit more spacious than the basic and semi-private rooms and come with a private bathroom. 

Rates and rate reductions 

Long-term care is publicly funded, with residents sharing the cost. Residents are responsible for paying a copayment set by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Admission is based on medical needs, not income. Those in basic accommodations may receive a subsidy if needed. 

You can provide your recent tax notice for rate reduction. Rates change every July 1, with a 30-day notice. The government adjusts maximum resident payments annually.  View the current long-term care accommodation costs.
