The BC Ministry of Health also provides a resource called Planning for your care needs: Help in selecting a residential care facility.

Access and costs for residential care

Visit the How to access services and Costs pages for home and community care services. Since publicly-subsidized residential care is a limited resource, a priority system is in place so that those who most urgently need this service are placed first.
