Provincially Funded Care Beds
You may apply to your local Health Authority for the publicly-subsidized Residential Care Program and select Villa Cathay as your preferred facility. The Health Authority will assign you a case manager, who will make an assessment to confirm that you or your family member meets the criteria to apply for a care home.
In general, the fees for seniors staying in a provincially funded care home are generally 80% of the individual’s income, with set minimum and maximum rates. The fees cover professional care, basic food & housing and basic hygiene product costs. As residential care is considered your home, you may be required to pay additional fees for services or items you would pay for if you are living on your own.
If you currently reside in Vancouver, Richmond, North Vancouver or West Vancouver, you can obtain more information from the Residential Care Provider Vancouver Coastal Health regarding public pay beds. For all other areas, please contact Fraser Health Authority for more information.
Please note that provincially funded beds are only allocated through the Health Authority and Villa Cathay has no control over the selection of its residents through this channel.
