Better at Home is a province-wide initiative operating programs in up to 68 communities that help 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.

WHO PAYS FOR BETTER AT HOME?

The Government of BC has given United Way of the Lower Mainland funding to manage Better at Home across BC. Individual community organizations will accept donations, raise funds, and encourage volunteer participation in the program.

Clients who receive Cowichan Region Better at Home services will also pay a fee for some services, based on their income. Some services may be free.
