In June 2022, all four Yee Hong Centres and our Community & Professional Services Division received Accreditation with Exemplary Standing for 2022- 2026 — the highest honour and recognition awarded by Accreditation Canada for an organization’s commitment to Quality and Excellence.
This is the eighth consecutive time that Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care received full accreditation since it began operations in 1994.
All personal and nursing care provided by long-term care homes in Ontario are funded by the government.
Residents are responsible for accommodation charges such as room and board. These charges are standardized in all long-term care homes in Ontario and are reviewed and updated by the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care every year.
How to Apply
All applications and admissions to long-term care homes are arranged by Home and Community Care Support Services organizations. You can find your local Home and Community Care Support Services by using the Home and Community Care Support Services map or calling 310-2222 (no area code required).
Your first call to Home and Community Care Support Services will determine whether a care coordinator should visit you for an in-person assessment.
At this visit, the care coordinator will assess your health, and may conduct other assessments as well, including capacity assessment, functional assessment, and behavioural assessment.
With this information, your care coordinator will be able to talk with you about your needs and the options for meeting them. For example, you may be able to stay in your own home with help from supports in your community, such as personal support worker visits or community paramedicine.
Accountability is one of the core values of Yee Hong. To ensure our long term care home meets required standards, each Yee Hong location must sign Long Term Care Home Service Accountability Agreements (LSAA) with our respective Local Health Integration Networks.
Long Term Care Home Service Accountability Agreements (LSAA)
Current LSAA Amending Agreements are for the service period of April 1, 2019 – March 31, 2023.

Emergency Planning and Preparedness
A disaster is an event which affects the normal operation of a facility. Fire, explosion, chemical spills, loss of heat, water, light and power, bomb threats and severe weather are all events which may be classified as a disaster. Yee Hong’s disaster management plans outline how our homes are prepared to effectively handle all emergencies.
