AHCS seeking Better at Home volunteers

Seniors in Agassiz and Harrison could receive more in home care

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, in partnership with Chilliwack Community Services, has announced a new way to support seniors. They will be offering the Better at Home program, which is managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland and funded by the provincial government.

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.

In the New Year, eligible seniors will be able to access services such as transportation, light housekeeping, friendly visits and minor home repair

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services is currently looking for volunteers who may be interested in helping with this program as a friendly visitor, or with minor home repairs.

For more information and to volunteer, contact Agassiz-Harrison Community Services at 604-796-2585.
