Just wondering if anyone has any recent experience with this.
My senior dad is in a funded bed in a care home in Fraser Health (in wheelchair and moderate Alzheimers) and mom will soon need supportive or assisted living (Dementia). We would like to bring them over here to help support them as they are alone over there (closest family is us in Nanaimo) and having problems which is resulting in a decreased quality of life that our regular presence would significantly improve.
We are being told that the wait list could be years to get them over here (and essentially being treated like a non-resident).
This is ridiculous as
a) he is already in the BC system (in another region) and has been a resident of BC for over 30 years
b) he could be dead by then
c) being nearby, we can help reduce the load on the system.
Any insight on how to speed the process? Who to talk to.
