Better at home, than in a home-- new program for Seniors

The Better at Home program will be introduced to Logan Lake, Ashcroft and Cache Creek (courtesy United Way).
There may be "no place like home."

But as you get older staying in your own home can be a challenge.

Yardwork, housekeeping, even grocery shopping can be difficult for some seniors.

It's a provincial program called 'Better at Home".

Elaine Munro is with the Logan Lake Wellness, Health and Youth society.
