With all of today’s healthcare technologies, the chances of living past the age of 100 are greater than ever!
Many citizens are misinformed about the government health care available for senior citizens, and whether they cover the cost of long-term care. In Ontario, long-term care is not covered by the public health care system.
In reality, the government is not required to cover assisted living. Though they may provide support to families who are struggling, it will only cover a portion of the costs. This means that families will have to pay out of pocket for a significant portion of the costs associated with a long-term care.
