Seniors

Visitors to long-term care

Interior Health, along with all other B.C. regional health authorities, is restricting visitors in long-term care to essential visits only.

To keep our residents, families and staff safe, and in keeping with the provincial health officer’s directions, only essential visitors – immediate family members and spiritual advisor for a person who is at end-of-life – are allowed to visit.

As always, any individuals who are sick or are feeling unwell should NOT visit any care home.

Supporting seniors in need

Working together we can all help keep seniors safe from COVID-19.

Through the United Way, you can call 2-1-1 or visit www.bc211.ca if you are a senior in need of assistance, or if you would like to volunteer in your community to check in on a senior in need or to help pick-up groceries/prescriptions. The helpline will take calls 7 days/week to help keep seniors safe in their homes.
