Step 2: Obtain assessment from case manager and be approved for Family Managed Home Care.
Once the case manager has received the loved ones file, they will call and set up a time to do an assessment. Assessments will determine how much care it allowed for by the Ontario Government. This is not done by a dollar amount but an hour amount.
Typically increments are seen at 15, 30, 60 and in cases of high intensity clients 90 hours per month. In the case of being denied, families are able to appeal the decision.
Step 3: Obtain Business License.
Business Licenses are obtainable at Service Ontario or online here. Victoria Eldercare can, on behalf of the client, will help create the business licence and help them with sending the information to the case manager.
Step 4: Set up a bank account for the LHIN to deposit funds into.
Once a business license has been acquired, a business account with your bank will be needed.
Step 5: Submit all applicable application forms.
Once all application forms have been filled out, they will need to be sent to the case manager. Corrections may have to occur, allow time for the case manager to sort through the paperwork and approve.
Step 6: Obtain quote from Victoria Eldercare and submit to LHIN for approval.
Victoria Eldercare can send the quote directly to the case manager.
After these six steps are done, we start your care the way you want it.
