In Quebec, there are three types of CHSLDs to meet the needs of seniors: public CHSLDs, private CHSLDs and non-affiliated private CHSLDs.
What are the accommodation costs in nursing home CHSLDs ?

What is the difference between a CHSLD and a private seniors' residence ?
A CHSLD can be private or public and it is reserved for seniors with an important loss of autonomy. In the case of a private residence, it is an establishment that offers more or less extensive ranges of services related to domestic life, which can be very useful for a person with a slight loss of autonomy. Some residences are suitable for autonomous retirees and some may even be considered as Continuum of Care, so they adapt to the resident's needs (in terms of services, care, etc.)

What is a private funded CHSLD vs a private non-funded CHSLD ?
A private funded CHSLD is managed by a private company in partnership with the public sector. You must contact the CLSC in your administrative region to obtain a place. The financial contribution required from each resident is established by the Régie de l 'assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ) and determined according to his ability to pay. An not-funded private CHSLD, on the other hand, is managed by an independent owner of the State. He has his own admission criteria and the operation of his establishment is at his sole discretion. However, he must meet standards and hold a permit from the MSSS.
