Better at Home

Surrey and White Rock Better at Home 

The Surrey and White Rock Better at Home programs have integrated to a central intake phone line to accommodate the expansion of the program into more communities while simplifying the process. The Surrey and White Rock Better at Home program is now providing services to seniors in the communities of Cloverdale, Guildford, Fleetwood, Newton, South Surrey, Whalley, and White Rock.

What is Better at Home?

Better at Home is a program that helps seniors with simple non-medical, day-to-day tasks so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes, and remain connected to their communities.  The Government of British Columbia funds the program, United Way of the Lower Mainland manages it, and local non-profit organizations provide the services.
