  • COVID-free for 164 days since the public health emergency was declared in BC on March 17, 2020.
  • B.C. seniors advocate Isobel Mackenzie has launched a survey asking long-term-care and assisted-living residents and their families about their experiences with COVID-19 restrictions.  KinVillage will be distributing the letter to residents and family with instructions on how to access the survey from the Office of the Seniors Advocate.  If residents require assistance with completing the survey please ask family to assist or contact the office of the Seniors Advocate.  The survey can be completed online at carehomevisits.ca or downloaded, printed and mailed in. To request a copy of the survey in the mail, or to complete the survey over the phone, contact the Office of the Seniors Advocate at 1-877-952-3181.
