Community Bathing Programs

Community Bathing Programs

If you find it hard to bathe safely in your own home, even with support, you may benefit from community bathing programs. A Case Manager can refer you to this program.

For a small fee, you can bathe in special bathtubs, with help from trained staff, at facilities in the Island Health region.

How much does it cost?

There is a small cost for bathing services. Ask your Case Manager for more details.
