Salem Information

Salem Manor Nursing Home provides 24/7 daily living assistance and nursing care to individuals who can no longer live safely and independently at home. People with complex care requirements and cognitive decline are welcomed at our Home, were we strive to meet physical, spiritual, emotional and social needs of those entrusted to us in a loving home environment.

Admissions and Fees

Moving to Long Term Care can be a difficult and often confusing, or uncomfortable time.  We want to make it as comfortable and easy as we can for you!

Admission to a Long Term Care Home begins with a Comprehensive Health Assessment and a Referral to a Continuing Placement office. Your family doctor or Home Care Nurse (Health Link Alberta) can do assessments to determine what level of care you might need. A Continuing Placement coordinator will work with you and your family to find a suitable home.

Overview

Residents in long-term care are responsible to pay an accommodation charge. Accommodation-related services include rooms, meals, housekeeping and routine building maintenance. Health care services in designated long-term care settings are publicly funded at no cost to residents.

Accommodation charges

The Alberta government sets the maximum accommodation charge in designated supportive living and long-term care.

Accommodation charges while in hospital

If you are in the hospital receiving care, and the health care team determines your care needs no longer require hospital services, it may be decided that you would best be cared for in designated supportive living or long-term care. If a designated long-term care space is not immediately available to meet your needs and preferences, you may be required to stay in the hospital while waiting for a space to become available.

If you are staying in a hospital bed while awaiting admission into designated supportive living or long-term care, you will be charged a fee called an Alternate Level of Care (ALC) Accommodation Charge. These charges are set at the rate currently charged for a Standard room type (see PDF). This charge does not apply if your move is for palliative care.

There are fee waiver processes if the accommodation charge will cause you financial hardship. Your care team will help you explore possible government income supports and other benefits.

Financial help

In designated supportive living and long-term care facilities, accommodation charges may be fully or partly covered for residents who are eligible for the Alberta Seniors Benefit or clients of the Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped(AISH) program.
