Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan, Minister (and Langley MLA) Mary Polak, and United Way of the Lower Mainland CEO Michael McKnight attended a launch event in Langley to announce new Better at Home sites.
The Better at Home program is more than tripling the number of sites, adding 38 new locations including First Nations communities around the province. Designed to help seniors age 65 and older live in their own homes longer by providing simple services delivered by local non-profit agencies, Better at Home is managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland and funded by the Government of British Columbia.
Please see the media release and backgrounder for more information on potential Better at Home sites across British Columbia.
More information on the launch event is available on the website of the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
