Fraser Valley – Seniors in Abbotsford, Agassiz and Chilliwack will receive a Provinncial Health Services investment of more than $4-million in 2018-19 to increase staffing levels and ensure that seniors get the care they need in residential care homes.

This initial investment starts year one of a three-year plan to increase the direct care that seniors receive in residential care homes in these communities and around the province – to reach the target 3.36 care hours per-resident day, on average across health authorities, by 2021.

Approximately 100,000 more direct-care hours are to be provided in Abbotsford, Agassiz and Chilliwack residential care homes this fiscal year alone, which helps give seniors the care and quality of life they deserve,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health.
