The Elder Home Repair Program corrects unsafe home conditions (while contained and at a manageable scale), which if left untattended, threaten the immediate health and safety of elders at home as well as the structural integrity of their homes. Repairs may include structural or system failures of stairs, doors, windows, ceilings, as well as minor plumbing failures and electrical faults. Charges are for materials only; there is no fee for labor.
All staff are agency insured. Staff includes a CERTIFIED AGING IN PLACE SPECIALIST and CERTIFIED GRADUATE BUILDER, designations awarded by the National Association of Home Builders.
