Residential Care

What is Residential Care?

In British Columbia we offer Residential Care or Private Residential Care. Eligibility requires the completion of an assessment by our clinical team based on the services required. We also have retirement homes in British Columbia that are residential care homes for individuals that may require more daily care and support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our residential care homes offer the best of both worlds – the joy of an independent retirement home lifestyle as well as a range of optional care and services delivered by qualified staff to suit your personalized needs and preferences

Residential care is best suited for seniors who need some level of support with activities of daily living, while independent living is designed for active seniors who are largely self-sufficient. Both offer optional services for added convenience, such as housekeeping and laundry; residential care homes offer a broader range of care services to support your daily activities, as well as care options including dementia care.

If you do not require assistance with personal care, independent living is the right option for you. If you need an extra hand to get through your day, residential care is the best choice. Either way, you’ll enjoy living in your own comfortably designed suite, come and go as you please, and benefit from the activities you choose each day.

What depends on the unique care and support services you require. Typically, care services are additional to the standard suite accommodation cost, and if your individual care needs increase, the cost may also increase. Most of Revera’s retirement homes offer LiveWell™, an approach that’s all about making you feel your best, now and tomorrow, so you can keep being you. 

Together, we’ll come up with a personalized health and wellness plan that ensures any costs are related to your own specific needs. If your needs happen to change, we’ll work with you to adjust your plan to support your continued care and comfort. In some provinces in which Revera operates, the provincial government may provide funding to eligible assisted living residents, based on completed an assessment.
