Better at Home Program


Better at Home: We’re giving seniors a hand

Better at Home is a program that helps seniors with simple day-to-day tasks so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes and remain connected to their communities. The Government of British Columbia funds the program, United Way of the Lower Mainland manages it, and local non-profit organizations provide the services.

The United Way role

Part of United Way of the Lower Mainland's mandate is to support programs that help seniors to age with dignity.  As such, the United Way manages 67 Better at Home programs across the province.

Help is close to home

Seniors living in a community which offers Better at Home, can contact a local organizationto find out more and to apply for services. A service provider will help determine which services are most appropriate for an individual’s circumstances.
