There are many seniors living, wellness and care options available in B.C. Learn more below.
Independent living is a good option for seniors who are confident in their ability to live alone safely, but who don’t want to worry about things like home maintenance, housekeeping, or cooking. Seniors who choose independent living enjoy amenities and activities available in their retirement community and can feel confident knowing that help is there if they need it.
Home care and home support options enable seniors to get the help they need at home. Services range from publicly subsidized care, which is delivered through the person’s health authority, to customized private pay options, which can include medical care, transportation, companionship, and homemaking.
Assisted living homes are for seniors who can still live independently and make decisions for themselves, but who require additional support due to physical or health challenges. Assisted living services provide housing, hospitality services (like meals and homemaking), and personal care services.
Long-term care is an option for seniors who require 24-hour professional support and care because of their physical or health needs, or because they have advanced Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. This is the best option for many seniors who can no longer be cared for in their own home or in an assisted living home.
