Insurance and Risk Management Solutions for Senior Care Providers in Canada
When caring for seniors, risk is everywhere. Senior Care providers face an ever-evolving array of issues that threaten sustainable funding and their ability to provide quality resident care, and that challenge their professional reputation. Cost containment, recruiting pressures, regulatory mandates, and complex litigation often keep senior care providers from exploring ways to provide safe resident care while reducing cost and driving efficiencies.
Dedicated Senior Care Industry Advisors
With continual changes taking place in the senior care and health care arenas, every day there are new risks that need to be identified, quantified, managed, and either retained or transferred.
For more than 35 years, Marsh Canada has been a leading provider of insurance brokerage and risk management services to many of Canada’s for-profit and not-for-profit senior care operators. Dedicated Marsh specialists in insurance broking and placement, risk management and loss control, claims and litigation management deliver innovative solutions to help our clients avoid, mitigate, and transfer risk.
Unique Solutions for Senior Care Clients
Insurance Broking and Placement – Our experience in this industry has led to the development of a very broad insurance program designed exclusively for senior care facilities. The program covers property insurance, professional and general liability insurance, crime insurance, as well as boiler, machinery, and equipment breakdown insurance. We do offer insurance premium financing to those who qualify.
Risk Management Services – Guidance and advice focused on the objective of prevention, early identification, and management of incidents which might give rise to claims. This includes the complementation of a system to assist in reducing the frequency and severity of each circumstance and may include:

- Occurrence Reporting.
