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:
- A doctor will complete an application form and submit an assessment to the RHA for you.
- 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.
- The RHA will also assist you in choosing a home.
