Abstract:
This geospatial dataset provides the locations of Long-Term Care Homes (LTCHs) in Ontario. LTHCs 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. LTHCs 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. The source of this data is the Health Data Branch.
