Seniors: Do You Need Help With Odd Jobs
Around The House?
Community Care Northumberland offers community based home support services for seniors and adults who have special needs or are recovering from illness or injury and can no longer perform some basic household tasks.
“Our Home Help & Maintenance program is designed to help maintain clients in their own homes in their own communities,” said Trish Baird – Executive Director of Community Care Northumberland. “Our brokered workers perform tasks for our clients to help them maintain both the interior and exterior of their homes.”
Community Care Northumberland’s Home Help brokered workers assist clients with routine household activities such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry and running errands.
Their Home Maintenance brokered workers undertake home maintenance and repair jobs. This may be an occasional or one-time only job and may include: yard work, odd jobs, and heavy housecleaning.
The brokered workers are reimbursed for their time by their clients at the rate of $14.00 per hour and are fully screened by Community Care Northumberland. (Additional costs may apply for some Home Maintenance jobs.)
