Home Repair

Are you handy around the house?  You can make a world of difference to older adults in our community!

Lots of older adults want to live independently in their own homes, and need just a little help keeping their homes safe and comfortable.

If you can:

  • Patch drywall
  • Replace showerheads
  • Repair leaky faucets
  • Grout and caulk
  • Assemble furniture
  • Change lightbulbs
  • Hang pictures
  • Replace smoke detector batteries

Then you can help older adults age safely in the comfort of their own homes!

As a volunteer handyman (or woman!) for Help@Home, you can help older adults continue to live independently.  No matter your experience, you have skills that can make a real difference in the life of an older adult – from repairing doorbells to hanging window shades, there is a place for handy volunteers at any skill level.

  • Choose when, where, and who you work for
  • Flexible commitment – as little as an hour a month!
