Better at Home is a program that helps seniors with non-medical, 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, such as JFS, provide the services.
- Light Housekeeping
- Transportation to medical appointments (provided by volunteers)
- Grocery shopping assistance (provided by volunteers)
- Friendly visiting (provided by volunteers)
Services are available to all seniors 65+ living in Kerrisdale, Oakridge, Marpole, Southlands, and Dunbar (Ontario St. – Blanca St., W25 Ave. – SW Marine Dr.)
Housekeeping and transportation are priced on a sliding scale according to the individual’s income level. There is no charge for grocery shopping and friendly visits. For more information and fees, please see the image below.
