Seniors Healthcare in Victoria BC

by Jodi Baker on November 2, 2011

Another reason for seniors to choose Victoria for retirement living is the access to specialized seniors healthcare.  Geriatric practitioners, therapists and other specialists are well represented in the city because of Victoria’s history as a popular retirement destination.

The Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) provides health care to people of all ages on Vancouver Island, on the islands of the Georgia Strait, and in the mainland communities between Powell River and Rivers Inlet.  Their website provides links to all sorts of medical services, including those for seniors.  VIHA operates facilities like:

Health Point Care Centre – providing primary health care services to people 55 years of age and over who do not currently have a family doctor;

Hillside Seniors Health Centre – offering integrated services to adults over the age of55 living in the community andtheir family caregivers who reside in Greater Victoriawith three programs to support clients and offer seamless service.

The same groups that offer all sorts of social, recreational and community outreach programs for seniors who are living in Victoria can also direct you to more healthcare services for seniors.  Contact Seniors Serving Seniors or the Silver Threads Society for help finding the right services for yourself or your loved ones.

These days people can live longer, healthier lives because of advancements in our understanding of aging and maintaining physical and cognitive health. Still, it’s nice to be confident that you can find appropriate healthcare services for seniors in Victoria when you need them.
