Following the overwhelming success of the EquipCare BC program in helping protect seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic, B.C. Minister of Health, Hon. Adrian Dix, recently announced $14 million in funding for the program during BCCPA’s 46th Annual Conference. Over the next two years, the program will focus on investing in health, safety and quality improvements in long-term care homes and assisted living residences. The funding will help purchase items to promote safety and enhance quality of life for seniors.
Thank you to Hon. Adrian Dix and Parliamentary Secretary for Seniors’ Services and Long-Term Care, MLA Harwinder Sandhu, for their support of seniors and providers of long-term care and assisted living across B.C.
