Support LocalHelp for those isolated!United Way’s Better at Home Program
Supporting the non-medical needs of older adults in BC
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.
Its unique ‘seniors planning for seniors’ approach means older adults contribute to the design, operation and evaluation of their local program.
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 organization to find out more and to apply for services. A service provider will help determine which services are most appropriate for an individual’s circumstances.
