Seniors Health Care Publications


I hope you can join me on Thursday, December 10th @ 2pm for a presentation and discussion about two publications released each year by the Office of the Seniors Advocate: Monitoring Seniors Services and Long-term Care Facilities Quick Facts Directory Summary. 

The Monitoring Seniors Services report presents findings related to the five key areas we monitor at the Office of the Seniors Advocate:

•             health care

•             housing

•             income supports

•             personal supports

•             transportation


The report highlights where seniors' needs are being met and where improvements are required. It helps us share with you how well we are doing at providing seniors with access to health care, appropriate housing, adequate transportation, enough income to meet basic needs such as food, shelter and medicines, and protection from abuse and neglect.

Monitoring Seniors Services was first published in 2015; it is published for the sixth time this year.

The Long-term Care Facilities Quick Facts Directory Summary is about the Office of the Seniors Advocate online Long-term Care Directory. This Directory is a resource that helps seniors, their families, and caregivers decide which facility is best suited to their needs. The online Directory includes information about individual publicly subsidized care homes in B.C. It includes information about room configuration, admission wait times, languages spoken by staff, inspections, incidents, food preparation, food costs, and care quality indicators such as the use of medications, restraints and access to therapies.

If you would like to attend the presentation about the Monitoring Seniors Services and Long-term Care Facilities Quick Facts Directory Summary, please register. We are using Zoom video conferencing to deliver the presentation, which also allows you to join by phone if you don't have a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Before the presentation, you can review copies of the publications on our website. They will be available December 8, 10:00 a.m. at

I look forward to hearing any questions you may have during the webinar question and answer discussion. To register for the presentation, please click on the link below. I hope you can join us.
