Last Thursday Cranbrook and Kimberley United Way hosted a public input session on the province-funded Better at Home program, which will provide seniors with non-medical home support services in more than 60 B.C. communities. The United Way designed the Better at Home program and will support local non-profit agencies in coordinating the delivery of such services as housekeeping, shopping and friendly visiting.
