United Way's Better at Home program helps BC' older adults continue living independently in their own homes by providing simple, non-medical home support services. Its unique seniors planning for seniors' approach means older adults contribute to the design, operation and evaluation of their local program. If you are a senior 65 or older living in our community you are eligible for this program. Seniors who receive Better at Home services will pay a fee based on their income. Some services are free of charge.
