The Bethanie Group
Our Aged Care Facilities offer person-centred care in a supportive and comfortable home-like environment.
We respect each person’s story and show people the dignity they deserve. We provide a wide range of services including chaplaincy and dementia care.
The Bethanie Group plans to use the SPICT as an electronic tool to evaluate care plans. The SPICT guides a more targeted approach to individualised care plan evaluation. It focusses on what it is that the customer needs to be able to live the best quality of life possible. This approach facilities an opportunity for crucial conversations about advance care planning in a sensitive and timely manner.

BC Palliative Care Benefits support individuals of any age at the end stage of a life-threatening disease or illness and want to receive medically appropriate palliative care at home.
Through this program, B.C. residents who are eligible to receive palliative care services at home can:
• receive PharmaCare assistance with the cost of palliative medications
• access certain palliative medical supplies and equipment from their health authority
Palliative Care Benefits are available to all B.C. residents with active MSP coverage who:
• are living at home
• have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness or condition
• have a life expectancy of up to six months, and
• consent to the focus of care being palliative rather than treatment aimed at cure.
The Supportive and Palliative Care Indicators Tool helps guide the medical/nurse practitioners in determining a patient’s medical eligibility.
