Send a letter to protect home and community care

BC Health Coalition Action Alert

Dear Friend of Medicare,

We're calling on you to join with public health care supporters in your community to demand quality and accessible health care for seniors and people with disabilities.

As a part of the home and community care weeks of action this month, write a letter to your local papers and have your say.

All British Columbians deserve to live with dignity and respect no matter what their age, ability, income or health status. Yet in this year alone seniors and people with disabilities have been hit with convalescent care fees and an increase in residential care rates. And they continue to face a shortage of publicly-funded, long-term care beds. 

Take action with others across the province and raise your voice in your local media. Visit our resource page and submit a letter to your local editor.
