A new online tool has launched to help navigate seniors' living options

Community Health Notice posted: 12-Dec-2019 1:02 PM PST

To help physicians navigate the possible options for assisted living for their senior patients, EngAge BC, an operating arm of BC Care Providers Association, has launched Route 65, a free and confidential online resource that connects seniors with living and wellness options across BC.

Through Route 65, seniors and their families can locate quality independent living, home health care, assisted living or long-term care options in their community. Users can also use Route 65 to seek information about commonly used terminology, or learn how to access services and connect with relevant non-profits or government agencies. The website also includes a regularly updated blog.

EngAge BC staff are available to answer questions, or provide Route 65 brochures which can be shared with seniors or their families.

For more information, please contact the Programs Advisor, Marjahn O'Connor, at marjahn@engageseniors.ca.
