Long-term care homes are designed for people who require the availability of 24-hour nursing care and supervision within a secure setting. In general, long-term care homes offer higher levels of personal care and support than those typically offered by either retirement homes or supportive housing.
Long-term care homes are owned and operated by various organizations :
- Nursing homes are usually operated by private corporations.
- Municipal homes for the aged are owned by municipal councils. Many municipalities are required to build a home for the aged in their area, either on their own or in partnership with a neighbouring municipality.
- Charitable homes are usually owned by non-profit corporations, such as faith, community, ethnic or cultural groups.
