Abbotsford Better at Home

Supporting 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.
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.

Assisting Seniors in Living Independently

A variety of services are available depending on seniors’ specific needs. Examples include:

  • Light housekeeping
  • Light yard maintenance
  • Transportation provided for non-medical errands
  • Grocery shopping
  • Information & referral service
  • Friendly visiting/peer support for seniors

To find out more about the program please visit the Better at Home website.

People We Help

  • Seniors over 65 who are Abbotsford residents
