Every Voice Counts

Listening to BC seniors about their experience living in long-term care

In 2016/17, we reached out to 27,000 British Columbia seniors and their families to get first-hand feedback on the quality of their care and accommodations.

We are again reaching out to the now 29, 284 residents living in 294 publicly-funded care homes in BC and their families.

Volunteer to engage in meaningful conversations with residents about their experience living in long-term care.

BC’s Seniors Advocate is honouring the commitment made in 2017 to again give residents and their families a voice five years after the first provincially coordinated survey.  The results of this survey will allow comparison of results over time, ensure learnings from the pandemic, and allow us to refresh the road map for improvement of the quality of care and services provided to residents and their families in long-term care, ensuring we can all be proud of the care our seniors receive.

See May 2022 News Release: “B.C. Seniors Advocate invites British Columbians to participate in the second landmark survey of people in residential care”;
