Dining room at a nursing home: facilities in B.C. have a range of health and recreation services.

Directory compares B.C. seniors’ homes

Health and recreation services compiled for 292 publicly funded facilities, as well as 'serious adverse events'

  • Mar. 30, 2016 7:00 a.m.

A new directory compiled by the Office of the Seniors Advocate offers families a chance to compare services offered by 292 publicly funded licensed care facilities in B.C.

The B.C. Residential Quick Facts Directory lists services such as nursing, physio and speech therapy, recreation and social work, as well as the total funded direct care hours per resident per day.

The directory also includes “serious adverse events” reported under provincial laws for hospital and community care facilities, as well as the date and reason of the last inspection.

Another point of comparison is quality indicator data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information, including percentage of residents receiving antidepressant or antipsychotic medication, compared to the provincial average.

The directory is available here.
