HOW TO GET INTO MAIMONIDES
In accordance with government regulations, all requests for placement in Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre are processed by a centralized Admissions Committee of the Health and Social Services Agency - a committee composed of healthcare professionals.
A social worker from the community - either at a CLSC or an acute care hospital - must make the official request to the Health and Social Services Agency who then prioritizes those on the waiting list according to the urgency of each case.
There is a room charge in all long-term care public establishments. This charge is determined by the Ministère de la main d'oeuvre et de la Sécurité du revenu, and is based on a sliding scale according to the assets of the individual.
Every attempt is made to provide the resident with the type of accommodation he/she prefers although this may not always be possible at the time of admission.
Effective January 1st, 2017, there have been changes to the room rates. These increases come directly from the Provincial Government. Donald Berman Maimonides does not set room rates.
The maximum monthly rate for a private room is now $ 1,836.90.
