What is Assurity?

The Assurity program was developed by EngAge BC to make it easier for seniors and their families to choose a home health or independent living organization with confidence. An Assurity home health or independent living certification means that the organization has policies and procedures in place which meet or exceed industry standards.

Before developing Assurity EngAge BC spoke to operators across the province to understand what it means to be a quality operator. The Association also spoke to clients and family members about the things that were important to them when choosing services.
