FUNDING AND HOW YOUR ACCOMMODATION FEES ARE USED
Long term care is part of the province’s health care system and publicly funded on a cost-shared basis with residents. The province pays for health care and related programs and services (about two thirds of the total cost), and the resident pays the remaining, which covers room and board type services and any costs for private or accommodation. The amount paid by residents for their LTC Home accommodation is called a "co-payment". The co-payment contributes to the meal and accommodation services received by residents in LTC Homes.
The MOHLTC sets co-payment rates for accommodation. The co-payment rates change from time to time (usually, annually).
These rates are set by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. Homes are not permitted to charge you anymore that the maximum amount set out by the Ministry.
Residents of LTC Homes who choose to stay in a semi-private or private room are required to pay a higher rate than basic accommodation. All residents admitted to preferred accommodation in a LTC Home are required to sign an agreement which provides details of the co-payment rate they will be required to pay on a daily/monthly basis.
Residents in a long-stay or interim bed with basic accommodation, who cannot afford to pay for the LTC co-payment, may be eligible to have their co-payment amount reduced. This is known as a rate reduction. Rate reduction process allows for greater fairness and consistency in the calculation of your accommodation fee to better reflect your ability to pay using available income. What this means is that you may be able to apply to keep some of your income to support dependents or to exclude certain income sources from the calculation of your income.
Residents in basic accommodation may apply upon admission or date of transfer to a
basic room and annually on July 1 thereafter for a reduction in the accommodation copayment rate.
To apply for a rate reduction, you or your lawful representative must complete a rate reduction application form and submit it to the homes Administrator. As part of the application you will be required to provide a copy of the Notice of Assessment (NOA) from the most recent tax year (some variables apply).
If you need assistance to apply for a rate reduction, please speak to the Administrator of Morriston. She will be able to provide you with direct assistance including help filling out an application form.
If your question or concern cannot be answered, please call the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Homes Action Line at 1-866-434-0144.
Morriston Park maintains a financial management system that provides residents with the opportunity of retaining money in Morriston’s specifically designated accounts.
Personal Trust account is for the management of each resident's personal funds.
These funds come through deposits by the resident or his/her representative.
They are non-interest bearing accounts and the balance cannot exceed $5,000.
Residents are strongly urged not to retain any significant amount of money in their
rooms or on their person. Personal Trust monies can be withdrawn Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 pm. with the exception of holidays at the Administrators office.
Morriston Park supports the activity of a Resident Council. Residents may get
involved by attending the monthly meetings. The Council serves in an advisory capacity to Morriston's Administrator. . Minutes of Council meetings are posted on the notice board and the response to minutes from the Administrator are also posted.
Morriston Park encourages the activity of a Family Council. Family members are invited to participate in this council. Currently we do not have an established Family Council.
The purpose of such a council is to support Morriston Park families by sharing
experiences and information. It encourages communication between families and the
Home. Through their meetings, solutions to common problems are sought. If at any time you wish to form such a council, please speak to the Administrator and she will assist in any way possible.
Morriston Park’s attending Physician is Dr. Lind Holland. She has been the attending Physician at Morriston Park for many years. She has her own family practice in Dundas, and is easily accessible to Morriston Park. New residents may keep their present Physician if that Physician is willing to meet the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care Standards. (i.e. physical assessments every year, medication assessments every 4 months etc). Families and Residents have the right to retain their own Physician or RN (EC) to perform the required services. Most families and new residents prefer to switch to Dr. Holland for convenience, and regular communication.
Dr. Holland can be reached at:
