“Better At Home” Services (Some Fee for Services)

Better at Home is a province-wide program funded by the Government of BC and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland to help seniors remain independent at home and stay connected with their community.  Deltassist is the service provider for all of Delta.

Better at Home supports seniors to age in place with dignity, stay socially connected and prevents social isolation, especially among seniors who are most vulnerable. The program recognizes that seniors are an important and growing part of our community and helps them with simple day-to-day tasks.

Under the Deltassist Better at Home program, seniors have access to a range of non-medical home support services. Services that have fees are on a sliding scale based on income.
