Founded in 1918, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is a national charity which helps maintain and improve mental health for all Canadians. As the nation-wide leader and champion for mental health, CMHA promotes the mental health of all and supports the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness.
Better at Home is a program which helps seniors with simple day-to-day tasks so they can continue to live independently in their own homes and remain connected to their communities. The Government of British Columbia funds the program, United Way of the Lower Mainland manages it, and local non-profit organizations provide the services.
Better at Home’s unique ‘seniors planning for seniors’ approach means older adults contribute to the design, operation and evaluation of their local program.
