Respect and quality care for seniors
When nine in ten seniors’ care homes don’t meet minimum government standards, it’s clear Christy Clark isn’t working for BC’s elderly population.
John Horgan and the BC NDP will make seniors a priority. We will help them stay in their own homes longer, improve the consistency of care in care homes and create a legislative committee focused on improving the care and lives of seniors.
Giving support to seniors to stay at home as long as possible is the right thing to do. We will increase the length of home support visits and expand the scope of services provided – helping seniors stay in their homes longer, reducing stress on family friends and other unpaid caregivers.
Seniors who move into residential care can expect increased support and more accountability from providers and their staff, so they receive the high-quality, dignified relationship-based care they deserve. We will conduct a review to establish and maintain safe staffing levels that aren’t disrupted by contracting out or contract flipping.
We’ll develop an all-party Select Standing Committee on Seniors. This committee will be tasked with refreshing the Council on Aging and Seniors’ 2006 Report, making recommendations to the Legislature and monitoring and reporting on the implementation of those recommendations.
