Assisted living services provide housing, hospitality services and personal care services for adults who can live independently and make decisions on their own behalf but require a supportive environment due to physical and functional health challenges.

Assisted living residences can range from a unit in a high rise apartment complex to a private home.
Units can vary from one room to private, self-contained apartments.

Assisted living services include:

  • a private housing unit with a lockable door;
  • personal care services (may include assistance with tasks like bathing, grooming, dressing and mobility or tasks delegated by a health care professional);
  • two nutritious meals per day, one of which is the main meal;
  • access to basic activity programming such as games, music and crafts;
  • weekly housekeeping;
  • laundering of towels and linen;
  • access to laundry equipment for personal laundry;
  • heating or cooling as necessary to maintain the safety and basic comfort level of the residence; and
  • a 24-hour emergency response system.

The Residences for Independent Living Society

The Residences for Independent Living Society was started in 1969 by a group of concerned parents of young adults with disabilities. Their goal was to provide a home-like care environment for young adults to live away from their parents and have the support they needed to lead fulfilling and independent lives.

Formerly known as the False Creek Residence Society, the focus of the Society was originally for young adults between the ages of 19 and 35. Through the hard work and generous donations of several families, the City of Vancouver and the Province of British Columbia, the False Creek Residence, located on the shores of Vancouver’s False Creek was completed in 1978.

The Society has continued their mandate to provide housing, support care and independent-oriented services and in 2001, opened their second residence, the Steveston Residence in Richmond, BC.

Over time, as tenants continued to live at the False Creek Residence, the age range expanded to include adults into their forties and even fifties. Today, the strength of both residences is the diversity of tenants (both with disabilities and families at Steveston Residence) and the range of services provided to the tenants receiving support services to encourage and promote an independent lifestyle – to whatever degree capable for each individual tenant.
