How do I enter the eligible expeenses listed on my retirement residence statement of account?

I received a statement of account from the retirement residence I am living in. It lists amounts for: "Nursing salaries and wages", "Activities director salaries and wages", "housekeeping & laundry salaries and wages". as well as "dietitian & chef salaries and wages" as "eligible expenses". I am not classified as having a disability. Should these be listed as "rent" on my Ontario property tax credit page, or somewhere else? The facility is not a public long term residence. It is a private for profit residence. Thank you.

How do I enter the eligible expeenses listed on my retirement residence statement of account?

This breakdown is used for eligible medical expenses. Many costs associated with retirement residences are deductible as medical expenses even if you do not have a disability. Here's a link for more information:  https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/individuals/topics/about-your-tax-return/tax-re...

You may also have additional amounts for rent you can use for the Ontario Trillium Benefit. Contact the office of the residence to confirm.
