Since its inception in 2014, Vancouver South Better at Home has provided over 1700 volunteer driven rides for seniors with mobility challenges, and nearly 500 friendly visits to folks looking for companionship.
These services have been provided by dedicated volunteers offering their time to support older adults and help build a better community. All those who attended were excited to meet other volunteers with the program and share their experiences as drivers and friendly visitors.
Better at Home aims to ease the challenges of independent living for older adults by providing non-medical home supports. It is funded by the Government of B.C. and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.
