1. Long-Term Care Facilities for Seniors

Long-term care facilities and homes (aka. "nursing home") are for people who require the availability of 24-hour nursing care and supervision within a secure setting. They provide a higher level of care and support than retirement homes or supportive housing. Long-term care homes are owned and operated by various organizations: 1) Nursing homes are usually operated by private corporations; 2) 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; 3) Charitable homes are usually owned by non-profit corporations, such as faith, community, ethnic or cultural groups.

4. Respite Care and Child Care

Respite refers to short term, temporary care provided to parents (or caregivers) so that they (and their families) can take a break from the daily routine of caregiving, and can range from a few hours to enough time for a vacation. Despite the guilt that parents or caregivers may feel, respite care can be very helpful in relieving stress from caregivers and give them time to recharge. Respite care may include services to take care of children, or older adults, or even parents.
