Better at HomeSupporting seniors to continue living independently in their own homes by providing simple, non-medical home support services
Abbotsford Better at Home
With the provision of United Way Healthy Aging funding as part of the COVID response, the Better-At-Home program has modified services so seniors get the support they need to stay safe at home.
Revised outreach services include grocery shopping, meal delivery, prescription drop-off, and regular check-ins. At this time housekeeping services have been suspended indefinitely until COVID response measures have been lifted.
Please visit our Seniors Services overview page for more information.
In partnership with the United Way, we help older adults in Abbotsford continue living independently in their own homes by providing simple, non-medical home support services such as light housekeeping, light yard maintenance and transportation for errands. Fees for service are based on income.

A variety of services are available depending on senior’s specific needs. Examples include:
- Light housekeeping
