Nisbet Lodge

Application steps

While most seniors prefer to live in their own home for as long as possible, sometimes a move to long-term care or seniors’ housing becomes necessary and even advisable. This is never an easy decision for the senior or family. We want to help you make the right decision, so you’ll find a lot of information here.

We welcome your inquiries.We also invite you to arrange a tour. Even though all placements for long-term care start with the Home and Community Care Support Services Toronto Central, a tour can be a very helpful part of your decision making.

One of our goals is to be the residence of choice for those wishing to live in a faith-based long-term care home or senior’s apartment in East Toronto. We think we’re doing something right and so do others.

Application Process

All placements for long-term care start with the Home and Community Care Support Services Toronto Central (HCCSS).HCCSS manages the waitlist for all LTC homes.

These are the steps in the application process:

  1. The Client or his/her family contact the Home and Community Care Support Services (HCCSS). If in the hospital, the hospital placement coordinator or discharge planner may help with this process.

  2. The HCCSS placement coordinator assesses client needs to determine service requirements.

  3. HCCSS determines client eligibility for long-term care (LTC) placement and completes the application with the Client and or family.

  4. Applications are then forwarded to five homes of client’s choice.

  5. Once the application is received by the long-term care Home (LTCH), the application is reviewed to ensure client care needs can be met in that specific long-term care home.

  6. The LTCH must notify HCCSS and the client of the decision to approve or decline the application. If approved, the facility will also designate which unit would be appropriate for admission.

  7. The client is then placed on the homes’ wait list according to priority rating.

  8. The home notifies HCCSS whenever there is a bed vacancy.

  9. After discussion with the LTCH and HCCSS the bed is offered by the HCCSS Coordinator to the next applicant on the waitlist, appropriate to the person’s needs, requested accommodation and unit designation.

  10. Admission is scheduled.

Please note: Nisbet Lodge has a faith-based designation. If you want to live here specifically because Nisbet is a Christian home, please indicate this on your LHIN application. This will provide a slightly higher placement on the waitlist.
