She is not going to get her PR status anytime soon and there is no chance that she will get OHIP either. She is not entitled to publicly funded health care. She needs to be a permanent resident and then live in Ontario for at least three months after that. You cannot expect for her to get coverage as that is simply impossible.
I hope she has private insurance from the UK that will cover her health care.
She will be eligible for nursing homes where you can pay the fees or she can but there just will not be funding for her at all.
You should not have been told to bring her over as that was not correct and you now see it. If you or she cannot afford her care here then the best approach is to take her back to England unfortunately.
I don't think anyone else would have answered you as this is what we call a bad news answer but you need to know the truth and at once so I took a chance and answered. Please don't shoot the messenger.
