    Better at Home Program inclusion Powell River Society

    The Better at Home Program helps seniors continue living independently in their own homes by providing simple, non-medical home support services in Powell River and Texada Island.
    Volunteers help us provide transportation to and from appointments, the grocery store, library, and other locations as required. We also are looking for volunteers to visit with seniors, go for walks, play cards, or go out for a coffee.
    Our volunteers find their work incredibly rewarding and the seniors love making connections in their community.
