Admission to Friendly Manor is administered by the South East Office of the Home and Community Care . For more information about Admissions, Eligibility Requirements or Financial Arrangements contact the Home and Community Care branch nearest you.
The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care sets accommodation co-payment rates for the province. The co-payment rates change from time to time (at a minimum, annually in July). For the most up-to date rates, contact the staff at your local community Care Access Centre or the Office Manager at Friendly Manor.
If your income is not sufficient to pay for the basic accommodation rate, there is a subsidy available to reduce your accommodation, should you qualify. Subsidies are only available for basic accommodation. The home Office Manager can provide a rate reduction application form for residents to complete. If your are moving into a long-term care home and your spouse requires financial assistance to remain in his or her home, there is a government benefit called “Exceptional Circumstances” for people with lower incomes or couples who have to live separately. For more information, contact your local Community Care Access Center.
