Sometimes it only takes a little help for someone to live independently in the setting they choose. Our volunteer handymen and women make hundreds of repairs to maintain homes: fixing plumbing, patching masonry, changing lights and more. See JOBS TO DO for a list of requested repairs. .....
To help avoid elder abuse in home repairs, we can suggest contractors and vendors to provide good work at fair prices.
We have a CAPS Certified person on staff (Certified Aging in Place Specialist), and we advocate for Universal Design and Visitability elements to makes homes easier to live in and more accessible.
