Better At Home

Better At Home Coordinator: Sarah Woelders, 778.860.5499

Better at Home is a program that helps seniors with simple day-to-day tasks so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes and remain connected to their communities.  Grocery shopping, minor home repairs, light housekeeping and light yard work are the services presently available.  Volunteers and paid contractors provide these non-medical supports to help seniors 65 years and older remain in their own homes for as long as possible.

We are funded by the Government of BC and managed by the United Way.
Minor Home Repairs are provided in partnership with DaCosta Construction.

Grace is an 86 year old woman who lives on her own in Chilliwack.  Before a medical diagnosis, Grace lived an active lifestyle and was always eager to get out and do her own grocery shopping.  With changes in her physical abilities, she wasn’t sure how she could get out to do her grocery shopping.  She didn’t have a computer, so online ordering and delivery was not an option.  Unsure of what other options were available, she called Chilliwack Better at Home.

Better at Home is a program that strives to help seniors stay in their homes for as long as possible by extending a helping hand and providing social connections to their community.  The program is funded by the Province of British Columbia and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.

Grace connected with the Better at Home Coordinator and learned that they had a partnership with Save On Foods. Better at Home staff could take her grocery order for her every Monday, and arrange for Save on Foods to deliver the groceries just a few days later!

The Better at Home staff enjoy their weekly chats with Grace, and she can now receive her groceries regularly through the program, which has helped her settle into her new routine.
