Alice seniors

The Better at Home program extends its program to seniors in Port Alice.

PORT ALICE—The Better at Home program has trained its first group of volunteers and is working in Port Hardy and Port McNeill helping seniors. The program is now offering this service in Port Alice.

What does Better at Home provide? Volunteers that will help elders/seniors with simple day-to-day tasks such as: friendly visits, help with groceries, minor home repairs, transportation, light yard work, and housekeeping.

“At Better at Home, we’re working hard to help seniors age with dignity,” said Pat Horgan, local coordinator of the program.

The North Island Crisis and Counselling Centre is seeking volunteers that want to make a difference in their community. To inquire about volunteer opportunities please call 250-949-8333.
