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 Alberta, Health Link Alberta, a centralized government agency, will refer you to your local Continuing Care Placement office.
Here are the steps in the process:
- Alberta Health Services (AHS) will refer you to your local Continuing Placement Office.
- A Placement Coordinator will work with you to find a suitable centre for assessment and admission, if you can no longer be cared for in your own home.
