We need to improve and expand publicly funded home support and end for-profit long-term care!
We need a continuum of care that allows seniors to live independently at home for as long as possible and provides person-centered care that supports better quality of life for those living in residential care.
However, over the past twenty years home care has been devalued and rationed, with access to publicly funded home support consistently declining in BC since 2001. At the same time, for-profit long-term care companies have been pocketing public funds as profits and degrading the standard of care provided in residential care.
