Service to Seniors

  • Transportation (transport to appointments, grocery store, etc.)
  • We have many seniors who are unable to drive, who have no friends or relatives to help, yet who must travel for medical appointments, food shopping, and other periodic appointments. We will match you a senior based on your availability.
  • Chore Services (house cleaning, laundry, yard work, snow shoveling)
  • Many seniors are able to live in their own homes yet are physically unable to attend to some of the normal day to day activities required of a home owner. Chore volunteers can help a senior to stay independent, live in a familiar and comfortable environment, and avoid the cost of assisted living.
