Better At Home

The West End Better at Home program is designed to help older adults with simple, non-medical day-to-day tasks so that they can continue to live as independently as possible in their own homes.

Better At Home is funded by the Government of B.C. and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.

Eligibility

You may be eligible if you are an adult 55 years of age or older living in the West End and have mobility challenges which limit your ability to complete day-to-day tasks safely and effectively.

Cost

Better at Home offers services subsidized on a sliding scale determined by your annual income.

What Services does Better At Home Provide?

Light Housekeeping

Transportation
Trained volunteer drivers provide seniors with transportation to and from medical and other critical appointments. Clients are responsible for any parking fees.
