Better at Home

Supporting the non-medical needs of older adults in B.C.

Better at Home is a program that helps seniors with simple non-medical, day-to-day tasks so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes and remain connected to their communities.

Better at Home is one of a growing number of programs offered province-wide by Healthy Aging by United Way (HAUW).  With funding from the Government of British Columbia, HAUW administers the Better at Home program throughout B.C., supporting upwards of 80 non-profit organizations to deliver Better at Home to their communities. This collaborative approach ensures that local agencies can respond to local needs.

Help is close to home

If you’re a senior living in a community which offers Better at Home, you can contact the community agency in your area to find out more and to apply for services. A program coordinator will work with you to help determine which services will suit you best.
