The GPSC Residential Care Initiative was created to improve care for the ever
growing senior population, and to support divisions of family practice in finding local solutions to improve care for these vulnerable patients.
The initiative was prototyped by five divisions, beginning in 2011: Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Prince George, South Okanagan Similkameen, and White Rock - South Surrey. Based on the successes achieved in the prototype communities (whose stories are below), the GPSC
has earmarked up to $12 million annually to support divisions in designing local, scalable, and sustainable solutions that cover all residential care facilities in about 104 BC communities.
A list of residential care resources available to divisions can be found here
, and a series of infographics displaying early results from the prototype communities is available on the GPSC site
