Supporting the non-medical needs of older adults in BC.

“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.

United Way British Columbia Healthy Aging administers the Better at Home program throughout BC, supporting over 85 non-profit organizations who deliver Better at Home in over 260 communities. This community-based approach ensures that local agencies are responding to local needs. 

Better at Home is funded by the Government of BC and managed by United Way British Columbia Healthy Aging.” –
