Oceanside Better at Home

We're Giving Seniors a Hand

Oceanside Better at Home

 

Seniors are an important and integral part of the Oceanside community. To ensure you continue to play an active role in the community, you may require support to live independently in your own home.

Oceanside Better at Home provides a range of non-medical support services to local residents, aged 65+. The program is administered by SOS in partnership with the United Way of the Lower Mainland and funded by the Government of British Columbia. SOS Volunteers assist with:

  • Friendly visiting
  • Transportation to non-medical appointments
  • Grocery shopping

In addition, Oceanside Better at Home provides services on a sliding fee schedule such as:

  • Light housekeeping
  • Yard work

Oceanside Better at Home helps seniors age with dignity, and prevents social isolation.

For more information on Better at Home programs run throughout the province, visit www.betterathome.ca.

To register for this program, please call 250-752-2040 ext. 4

The program takes place at 744 Primrose Street, Qualicum Beach.
