[Report] Ageing Matters: Listening to B.C. Seniors

resource image

The ‘Ageing Matters’ report reaffirms B.C. seniors on fixed incomes are disproportionately impacted by the high cost of living and unable to absorb increased costs for housing, food, medical equipment, mobility aids and other necessities for healthy ageing.

The report is based on the issues raised to new Seniors Advocate Dan Levitt during his ‘listening tour’ in April 2024, travelling throughout the province to meet with seniors in both rural and urban communities and hear about their concerns. He also met with local seniors’ service providers, volunteers and other stakeholders to learn about the gaps, barriers and suggestions for improvement as well as what is working well for older people.
