The Better at Home program offers a variety of non-medical supports to help seniors across BC remain independent in their own homes.

Beacon’s Better at Home program offers a mix of volunteer and paid services to people 65+ who are living independently on the Saanich Peninsula or in the District of Saanich, where we’ve partnered with Saanich Volunteer Services.

Some seniors may qualify for a 100% subsidy. Others may pay fees (charged on a sliding scale, based on your income) for services such as:

Light Housekeeping:

  • Making beds
  • Cleaning or vacuuming floors
  • Cleaning bathrooms or kitchens
  • Watering plants

Companion Services such as:

  • Conversation or reminiscing
  • Reading
  • Playing cards or board games
  • Facilitating personal correspondence

Other services may also be available as a Volunteer Service, free of charge (including drives to medical appointments or minor home repairs).

Pre-registration is required.  During COVID,  some services may be suspended: but please call to check, and find out how we can help you! For more information or to register, please contact our Better at Home Program Coordinator at 250-656-5537 or
