About Home Maintenance and Chore Services

EldercareMany seniors who want to remain in their homes find it difficult because of an inability to function in the home, a lack of transportation or because of the necessity of maintaining the home and the yard and being unable to do so.

There are numerous community and private services that provide such things as home repair, deep cleaning, remodeling, maintaining the yard, shoveling snow, transportation and so on. Sometimes Medicaid or the local community area agency on aging will provide these services for financially needy individuals for free. For people with means there may be a charge.

There is currently a growing trend for private companies to provide these services for a fee. People who have the means can hire trusted contractors or workers who are bonded and trained to work with the elderly. This allows many who would have to move from their current homes to remain in the home and receive the services necessary to maintain their home or to navigate the home with the help of modifications.
