The Place of Assisted Living in BC’s Seniors Care System

While COVID-19 has focused attention on problems in long-term care, a new study from the BC Office raises concerns about assisted living and concludes it’s time for BC’s Seniors Advocate to review the sector.

The report looks at the state of assisted living in BC today regarding the quality and appropriateness of services it provides to seniors, the conditions for both residents and workers, and the legislative and regulatory frameworks that govern assisted living. It is the first comprehensive report from a BC perspective to look at care quality issues in assisted living from the perspectives of front-line workers and families, and documents why we need to urgently act to improve quality of care in assisted living for seniors.
