Campuses of Care - Innovative Seniors Housing in British Columbia

Province: BC

As our senior population is growing, different needs are emerging. The recognition of people’s desire to 'age in place' and keep loved ones at different care levels in close proximity to one another for their health and well-being, has fueled the emergence of Campuses of Care. 

Essentially, different levels of care are available in one complex so seniors can move within the site should their needs change over time. Additionally, spouses at different levels can both reside in the same complex even if their accommodation is not in the same unit. This allows for easy visiting and even an opportunity to have some meals together if desired. Campuses of Care consist of independent living units, assisted living and residential care. Many have units that are government subsidized. 

A goal of these developments is to create a ‘community’ where residents and staff support one another. For more information on Campuses of Care visit  or contact your Local Health Authority.
