Better at Home program launched in Delta
Starting this month, Deltassist is offering light housekeeping services for seniors in Delta thanks to a new program called Better At Home.
This program, funded by the province and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland, is part of a collection of services working to help seniors live independently and remain connected to the community.
The Better at Home program complements existing home support services such as assistance with personal hygiene or medical needs, which are provided through Fraser Health.
For many seniors, assistance with simple tasks can provide the support they need to remain independent in their own homes. To help seniors in Delta maintain their independence, Deltassist provides grocery shopping, friendly visits, phone support, transportation to medical appointments, and now light housekeeping through the Better At Home Program.
All of these services are offered by a mix of paid staff and volunteers. Fees for service are on a sliding scale based on income, which may include free services for low-income seniors.
For more information on seniors’ services at Deltassist, call 604-946-9526 or visit www.deltassist.com.
