β€œWe are once again grateful to the Province for this special proclamation to mark today as B.C. Seniors Care Providers Day,” says BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) and EngAge BC CEO, Terry Lake.

β€œFrom those working with seniors living in a care home or at home, to those who operate care homes or assisted living residences, everyone working tirelessly in supporting health, safety and well-being of seniors across B.C. deserves to be recognized, honoured and celebrated.”

This declaration follows the 10th Annual BC Care Awards, which took place in Victoria yesterday evening to celebrate the commitment and inspiring work of individuals who provide the best care possible.
