Assurity, The Mark of Quality
Choosing an independent living residence or home health care provider is not an easy decision. Therefore, knowing what to look for and what questions to ask can lead to a better choice.
To help you with your decision-making you now have Assurity — a new program developed by the experts at EngAge BC to make it easier for seniors and their families to pick a home health or independent living organization that upholds industry standards for quality.
How do I know if an Organization is Assurity certified?
An Assurity certified home support or independent living organization will have the Assurity logo on their Route 65 listing. By having the Assurity symbol, it means that the organization has made it a priority to meet or exceed industry standards in areas such as privacy, safety, client/resident onboarding, infection prevention and control practices, emergency preparedness, employee safety and client satisfaction.

How was Assurity Developed?
The Assurity quality assurance certification was created because consumers were looking for a resource they could trust to help them choose which home support or independent living provider was best for them.
Assurity was developed from the ground up by collaborating with B.C.’s best home health and independent living professionals. We also met with older adults and the family members about the things that were important to them when choosing a place to live, or home health operator to support them. Using the fresh ideas and feedback from providers and users of these services, we created Assurity to help you make the right choice!
