Better At Home

The West End Better at Home program is a project designed to help seniors with simple, non-medical day-to-day task so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes. Better at Home offers services subsidized on a sliding scale determined by your annual income.

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


You may be eligible for subsidized services if you are a senior over 65 living in the West End and have mobility challenges which limit your ability to complete day-to-day tasks safely and effectively.

What Services does Better At Home Provide?

Light Housekeeping
Housekeeping services (such as laundry, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, and other physically demanding tasks) are delivered by professionals. Depending on client need and program capacity, the housekeeper will provide from 2—6 hours of free or low-cost service a month.

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