Better at Home is a program that provides non-medical services to seniors to assist them to live independently in their own homes and remain connected to their communities. Seniors 65 and older, living independently in Dawson Creek can contact Better at Home to find out more and to apply for services.
Better at Home services vary from community to community. They are designed to complement existing services and are based on the unique needs of local seniors.
Services available in Dawson Creek are:
- Friendly visiting
- Transportation to appointments or shopping
- Yard work
- Minor home repairs
- Snow removal
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, transportation and in-home maintenance services are not currently available. In-person friendly visits have been replaced by visits by phone. We look forward to resuming these services when restrictions are lifted.
The Better at Home Program is available in over 70 communities across British Columbia. To find a Better at Home near you, go to the Better at Home provincial website.
In Dawson Creek, Better at Home is a partnership between SPCRS and SPSASS, the South Peace Seniors’ Access Services Society. The program is funded by the Government of British Columbia and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
