Agassiz-Harrison Community Services Seeks Better at Home Clients

Program helps Agassiz and Harrison seniors remain at home longer

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, in partnership with Chilliwack Community Services, is pleased to support seniors through the Better at Home Program. Better at Home is managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland and funded by the Government of British Columbia.

Volunteers, contractors and paid staff from local non-profit organizations will provide Better at Home services. By helping seniors remain at home longer, they support a diverse, inclusive and vibrant neighbourhood for everyone.

Eligible seniors will be able to access services such as:

• light housekeeping

• Transportation

• Friendly visits

• Minor home repair

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services is currently accepting applications for seniors to receive Better at Home services. Seniors and/or their family member may apply directly by filling out an application form at the Agassiz-Harrison Community Services office which is located at 7086 Cheam Avenue, Agassiz.

Fees for Better at Home services are determined on a sliding scale based on income level. Some services may be offered free of charge.
