ll applications are rated according to a provincial priority rating system based on five areas: income; risk in current housing situation; degree of independence; housing needs; and, special circumstances. Those who have the most significant need, as evaluated by the rating system, will go to the top of the waiting list.
For lodge suites, applications are submitted on-site to the local lodge manager. For DSL suites, placement is co-ordinated with Alberta Health Service.
Lodge rates are set by the local management body and may vary between different areas of the province. Protection for low-income seniors is established by regulation under the Alberta Housing Act. To protect lower-income residents, management bodies must ensure that each senior resident 65+ years of age is left with at least $322/month in disposable (after tax) income to spend on personal needs after paying his/her monthly basic lodge rate.
