A program that helps seniors with a variety of tasks has expanded to Mission.

The United Way of the Fraser Valley (UWFV) is the non-profit agency chosen to lead Better at Home, which can provide help such as light housekeeping, grocery shopping, simple home repairs, transportation to appointments, friendly visiting, snow shoveling or light yard work, said UWFV executive director Wayne Green.

“The purpose of this program is to provide tools to allow seniors to age in their homes, and will increase independence for seniors,” he added.

The program is funded through the province.
