A home support worker on an Uncertain Future for Seniors


Accesible, high-quality care for seniors : this issue touches everyone at some point in their lives — seniors receiving health services, people caring for aging relatives, anyone who worries about what their own life will be like when they grow old.

Carla talks about the challenges of helping seniors as a home support worker.

In British Columbia, home support services have been cut back in recent years. Home support helps seniors to live independently at home. Workers provide personal care services such as assistance with bathing and dressing, as well as help with medications and simple wound dressings.
