You don’t need to be Bob Villa to be someone’s handyman hero. Many seniors who have limited mobility and strength often can’t make light repairs or continually keep up with general household maintenance.
Whether it’s hanging a bedroom shelf or just mowing the yard, there are countless small repairs or upkeep needed around the house you can help a senior with.
Did you know…
While trimming the hedges or screwing in a new light bulb may not seem like much, but for a senior in need, an hour of two of your time helping around the house can make all the difference in the world. Besides putting a smile on a face, the good deed also creates social interaction for someone who likely receives very little during the week.
