There is a spectrum of housing options for older adults in British Columbia, with independent living on one end and long term residential care on the other. This project focused on the middle point in the spectrum – assisted living. Assisted living combines elements of independent living with some personal and health care services.
The project identified and analyzed existing practices of providers and expectations of older adults, considered options for reform, consulted broadly with the public, and produced a final report with recommendations for changes to the legislative framework for assisted living.
This project was generously funded by the Notary Foundation of British Columbia and the Law Foundation of British Columbia.
