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 Saskatchewan, the Regional Health Authority (RHA) manages admissions to long-term care.
Here are the steps in the process:
- The RHA will complete an assessment to evaluate your needs and program options, as well as explain the fees.
- The RHA sends an assessment report to the Regional Committee who will decide on acceptance.
- The RHA will coordinate placement; however, you will have to access the first available bed. You can transfer to a home of your choice once a bed is available by adding your name to a wait list that the RHA manages.
