Help the BC Health Coalition stop wheelchair fees for seniors

BC Health Coalition

IF MOM CAN'T AFFORD A WHEELCHAIR,
SHOULD SHE JUST STAY IN BED?

Imagine if you or your loved one were living in a care facility and were unable to get out of your room and go down the hall to the dining room because you can't afford to buy or rent a wheelchair.

Fraser and Vancouver Coastal health authorities want to bill seniors a monthly fee to use wheelchairs in our public residential care homes – and at least one region plans to ultimately make seniors buy or rent their own wheelchair at a much higher rate.

This is no way to treat our elders.

The BC Health Coalition is speaking out, and you can help. We need a huge public outcry now to stop these plans before they go into effect on September 1st.
