Better at Home

Better at Home Bowen Island is designed to enhance seniors’ well-being and independence by providing a selection of non-medical services.

The North Shore Better at Home program is open to residents of Bowen Island who are 65 yrs and over or who are between the ages of 55-64 and on disability assistance. To be eligible, a resident must be living independently and not in private or publicly subsidized assisted living or a long term care home.  We provide assistance with the following:

  • Light yard work service
  • Minor home repair service
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Friendly visiting (over the phone during the COVID pandemic)
  • Light housekeeping service

A formal intake assessment is required to determine program eligibility. Fees may apply based on a sliding scale that depends on an individual’s or couple’s annual net income. Friendly visiting services by volunteers are free of charge. Please note that an eligible resident may be placed on a waitlist depending on the service requested and the availability of volunteers.
