The British Columbia Long-Term Care and Assisted Living Directory (the Directory), lists information about publicly subsidized long-term care facilities and registered publicly subsidized assisted living residences in B.C.
The information is compiled from several sources including: the facilities/residences, the Ministry of Health, Health Authorities, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC). The Directory also contains links to facility level results from our 2023 Long-Term Care Resident and Visitor Survey. Excluded from the directory are facilities that offer specialized services to unique populations that are not part of traditional long-term care for seniors.
The Directory was first published in hard copy in 2016 and 2017. After that, it became an online directory that is refreshed once a year and updated if a facility/residence reports a material change in their information. The most recently completed fiscal year of data is included in the directory. To ensure privacy of individuals, some data has been suppressed for facilities/residences with a small number of residents (usually less than 5). This is the same standard used by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
The latest update was published on December 20, 2023, and includes the following new content:
- Information about the long-term care resident monthly rates, residents who take more than nine medications and residents who have four or more emergency room visits.
- Results posted in our online directory of the OSA’s 2023 Every Voice Counts: Long-Term Care Resident and Visitor Survey that reflect the perceptions and opinions from residents and visitors about their experience and quality of life in publicly subsidized long-term care.
- More information about residents living in publicly subsidized assisted living residences including resident monthly rates, care needs and quality indicators such as clinical indicators (i.e., ADL, IADL, MAPLe, RUG and CPS scores), medication use, antipsychotic and antidepressant use, depression, dementia, caregiver distress and emergency room visits.
- The directory also reports if a long-term care facility and assisted living residence are co-located.
