Services are provided by volunteers, contractors and/or paid staff. Better at Home helps seniors with simple day to day tasks, allowing seniors to maintain their independence and stay connected with their community.
We woud like to help seniors maintain their dignity and to be able to stay in their own homes comfortably.
We are looking for volunteers to help Seniors gather socially for different activities.
We would be interested in anyone who would like to help teach small classes of arts and crafts, card games,photography, computers etc. These events would not start until Covid protocals allow people to get together again.
We would like volunteers to get in touch right away so we can start to prepare and have events ready to start when time permits.

During the Covid pandemic students are allowed to register hours for volunteering for their immediate and extended family or neighbourhood. Activities like lawn mowing, baby sitting, stacking firewood, assisting in a sports league or community class like dance or working in the family business can be counted toward their grad requirement. The goal is for students to gain skills, contribute in a positive manner and build experiences for their resumes.
