Better at Home (BH) is a non-medical home support program managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland (UWLM) and funded through the Government of British Columbia (BC). Non-medical home support services are designed to assist seniors with simple day-to-day tasks and are delivered primarily by non-profit agencies. Services provided across the 67 program locations include light yard work, minor home repairs, transportation to appointments, snow shoveling, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, and friendly visiting. The goals of the program are to help seniors continue to live independently in their own homes and remain connected to their communities.
UWLM is requesting proposals to evaluate the impact of the 6 Better at Home Rural and Remote Pilot programs across rural British Columbia. The 6 remote locations include : Arrow Lakes (Nakusp and area), Columbia Valley (Invermere and area), Granisle, North Central B.C. (Vanderhoof, Fraser Lake, Fort St. James and area), Robson Valley (Valemount and area) and Southern Gulf Islands (Pender, Mayne, Galiano and Satuna Islands). These programs commenced April 1st, 2015, and are the most recent additions to the provincial Better at Home program. More details are found in the RFP here.
