Better at Home
Seniors living independently in Saanich and on the Saanich Peninsula may qualify for Broadmead Care's new Better at Home (BAH) program. The program provides light housekeeping, companionship and volunteer services for eligible seniors 65 plus. There are many services available including vacuuming, cleaning, companion visiting, supported transportation, daily reassurance phone calls, minor home repairs or yard work. Fees may be charged for some services on a sliding scale based on your income. Some seniors are eligible for up to 100% subsidy for housekeeping. All volunteer services are free of charge.
The BAH program is funded by the provincial government through the United Way of the Lower Mainland. Broadmead Care's partners in this program include Saanich Volunteer Services and Beacon Community Services.
