Seniors' Supportive Housing
The Seniors' Supportive Housing program provides specially modified rental homes, in selected subsidized housing developments, primarily to low-income seniors and people with disabilities who need some assistance in order to continue to live independently. The program focuses on converting and upgrading existing housing to enhance accessibility and improve safety systems. It also introduces support services such as 24-hour response, light housekeeping, meals, and social and recreational activities.
The Seniors' Supportive Housing program is designed to complement BC Housing’s other programs for seniors and individuals with disabilities and is situated on the housing continuum between transitional and assisted living, and independent social housing.
