Assisted living costs BC

We survey fees from across the province

The costs for assisted living in the province of British Columbia will vary widely. The biggest factor affecting costs might be location. It's well-known that Vancouver has some of the most expensive real estate in the country, while costs in places like Kelowna and elsewhere are quite a bit lower, of course. Other important factors are the amount of care you require and the quality of the assisted living facilities.

Cost of subsidized assisted living in BC

Eligibility for subsidized assisted living communities in BC requires the completion of an application through your regional health authority’s home and community care office. To find out if you qualify for publicly subsidized assisted living, or to apply, contact the home and community care office in your community. If you already have a home and community care case manager, call him/her to request an assessment.

If you are eligible for one of these communities, your costs will be a set monthly fee of 70 per cent of your after-tax income. This fee will cover the rent of your assisted living apartment, hospitality services and personal assistance care services (covering ADLs like bathing, feeding, etc.) up to a maximum amount. You will also need to consult with communities to learn about any additional fees you might pay for services such as extra meals. The fee will be paid to the assisted living operator, along with a monthly surcharge for BC Hydro. Otherwise, all your basic services and needs are covered, except for items like your telephone or television. Learn more.

What's the average cost of assisted living in BC?

The average cost of senior assisted living across the province of BC, according to one estimate, is $2700 per month. Actual costs that residents will pay will vary widely, depending on the care options required, the actual location of the facility (Vancouver, of course, will be more expensive than some interior cities and towns) and the quality of the residence. Private care homes will offer more services and a lower staff-to-residents ratio (as seen above), and will be priced accordingly.
