A new phone line and website has been announced by the B.C. government to support seniors living at home throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. “Please do not be afraid, but please stay home and get help,” said B.C. Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie alongside Minister of Health Adrian Dix.
The call line, 2-1-1, is intended to connect elderly British Columbians with people who can offer support. Services offered through the 2-1-1 line will include meal delivery, help with cooking, delivery of groceries and medications, wellness calls, and visits.
