Long-term care homes receive funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The amount paid by residents for their accommodation is called a "co-payment". The cost of long-term care depends on the type of accommodation requested. 

Visit the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care website for more information.

The City of Hamilton owns and operates two long-term care homes.
