Everyone in B.C. deserves quality and accessible health care no matter their age, ability, income or health status.
When home and community care services, such as home support and residential care, are fully funded, well coordinated and accessible, they are a key part of care for people and reduce pressure on the more expensive primary and acute systems.
In countless consultations and studies, British Columbians have told our government that we expect that seniors and people with disabilities be treated with dignity and respect, and that the health care system be there for them when they need it. Despite this, the BC government has failed to act on many of the key recommendations to improve care.
The BCHC community works across the province to strengthen services for our elders and people with disabilities so that we can all live and age with dignity in B.C.
Home and Community Care saves money and saves lives.
