'Better at Home' originated with the pilot project "CASI" (Community Action for Seniors Independence). In January 2010, Dawson Creek was offered the opportunity to become one of the first communities to design, create, and implement a non-medical home support program.

Most services are provided by local volunteers and the office is located in the Dawson Creek Co-op Mall. For more information call 250-782-2341.
