Today, home health is a vital part of the continuing care system that allows seniors to manage their health, maintain their independence and stay in their homes. It also provides a cost-effective approach to care.
BC Care Providers Association is the province’s leading organization representing non-government home health providers. We support our members by providing knowledge, advocacy, and by keeping up to date about the issues that matter to them most.
