The Admissions Process


We understand that the transition into a long-term care home is a change in your lifestyle, whether coming from a hospital or the community, and we will strive to help make it as smooth as possible.

In Manitoba, the Regional Health Authority (RHA) manages admissions to long-term care – except in Winnipeg, where there is a separate long-term care access centre within the RHA.

Here are the steps in the process:

  1. A doctor will complete an application form and submit an assessment to the RHA for you.
  2. The RHA will bring together a panel or a number of professionals to assess your needs. The RHA will decide on the best options for you.
  3. The RHA will also assist you in choosing a home.
