Household and Yard Help

A Little Help supports older adults to continue to take pride in their homes and yards.

Our homes and yards are often seen as an expression of ourselves. We know many chores become difficult with age, illness, or injury. Sometimes we just need a little help to thrive at home. Volunteers can give help and advice with the tasks listed below. 

Gardening and Yard Work:

  • Watering indoor and outdoor plants
  • Weeding and planting
  • Spring and fall yard maintenance
  • Raking leaves
  • Shoveling snow (requests must be received by A Little Help by October for the coming winter. See our section on Snow Removal)

Handiwork/In-Home Assistance:

  • Changing light bulbs
  • Light cleaning, including sweeping, vacuuming, and dusting (on a monthly basis)
  • Making simple repairs
