Term: Personal Care Home (PCH) Residents

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2013-10-30


In Finlayson et al. (2007), a PCH resident is someone who lives in a personal care home (PCH); measured by the number of days they resided in a personal care home, weighted by their level of care.

As an indicator, this measures the average annual percent of area residents age 75+ living in a PCH for at least one day, in a year (values are the annual average for a two-year period). Area of residence is assigned based on where people lived at the time (using postal code or municipal code), which is mostly determined by the location of the PCH. Rates are age- and sex-adjusted to the population of Manitoba (75+).
