Now updated: When I'm 64 Services booklet

February 26, 2020

We’ve updated and revised one of our most popular booklets. Services for Older Adults, part of our When I’m 64 series, explains the health care, housing, social, and transportation options available to older adults in British Columbia. It highlights services and programs available to help people like Amaya make informed decisions and healthy lifestyle choices as they age. 

When I’m 64: Benefits for Older Adults explains what financial help older adults can get from government sources. We have discontinued a third title in this series — When I'm 64: Controlling Your Affairs — because the information is covered in one of our newest booklets, Planning for Your Future, a title aimed at British Columbians of all ages.

When I’m 64: Services for Older Adults complements other People’s Law School information of interest to older adults, including the more in-depth planning content now available on our website, as well as our wills and estatesconsumer, and money & debt topics.   

The updated booklet is now available as a PDF download. If you wish to order multiple copies of the print booklet, you can do so from Crown Publications.

Many thanks to our legal reviewer Kevin Smith for reviewing this update for legal accuracy.
