Vancouver area nursing homes have a tradition of offering excellent care and rehabilitation for the elderly. Rehabilitation programs have been shown to help stroke sufferers, with residents in some cases recovering significantly. Many long-term care programs have been shown to be beneficial, such as physical therapy and stroke recovery programs, among others.

Many long-term care residences in Vancouver are members of the British Columbia Senior Living Association (BCSLA). Members of the BCSLA use a progressive approach to care that anticipates the needs of seniors. This organization seeks to provide "advocacy, leadership and networking opportunities for its members. BCSLA members are committed to innovation, resident choice, and excellence in the senior living industry." Before choosing a nursing home in Vancouver, be sure to identify whether it is part of the BCSLA.

Service B.C. also lists numerous resources for British Columbia’s seniors. In addition, the Community Care and Assisted Living Act (CCAL), which encompasses long-term care, governs the health and safety standards for B.C.’s nursing homes. The Office of the Assisted Living Registrar deals with complaints about senior homes, maintains a registry of all retirement communities in B.C., and handles health and safety concerns (i.e. staffing and emergency preparedness).

Greater Vancouver offers an excellent variety of nursing homes. These communities provide the comfort of constant, dedicated, and professional care.
