Long-Term Care Initiative

The GPSC ​Long-Term ​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 th​e 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 long term care facilities in about 104 BC communities.

​For more information, view the Long-Term Care Initiative resources on the JCC Resource Catalogue. A series of infographics displaying early results from the prototype communities is available on the GPSC website.
