The Life Partners in Long-Term Care Act has now been proclaimed in Nova Scotia and will take effect March 1. The act will allow spouses, common-law and domestic partners to be placed together at the highest care level required. For example, if one spouse requires nursing-home care and one requires residential care, the couple would be placed in a nursing home. Government will also ensure this right applies to life partners of Veterans who reside in facilities where Veterans’ units are located.
