Our homes and yards are often seen as an expression of ourselves. We know many chores become difficult with age, illness, or injury. A Little Help supports older adults to continue to take pride in their homes and yards. 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
