Every Resident - Bill of Rights for people who live in Ontario long-term care homes
4. Proper care
"Every resident has the right to be properly sheltered, fed, clothed, groomed and cared for in a manner consistent with his or her needs."
In other words...
You have the right to receive the care you need. Your care should include:
- a proper place to live,
- enough good food to eat,
- clean clothes to wear, and
- help with looking clean and tidy.
The staff at your long-term care home should look after any special needs you have.
