Seniors Care Sector Advocate Raises Alarm Over Disruptions In Home Support

Burnaby, B.C. (May 2, 2019) – B.C. seniors and their family members are the focus of a new public awareness campaign around pending changes in publicly-funded home-based care that industry experts say will cause service disruptions and drive up costs. The campaign by BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) – dubbed “Hands Off My Home Care” – provides a website (handsoffmyhomecare.ca) that will give B.C. seniors their first opportunity to be heard by provincial MLAs when it comes to how home care is delivered.

In March, without any public consultation or advanced notice, B.C.’s NDP government announced that it would expropriate over 4,000 workers currently employed by six non-government home care agencies in Metro Vancouver and on Vancouver Island.
