HOUSEHOLD AND YARD HELP

Sometimes we just need a little help to thrive at home.

Our homes are often seen as an extension and expression of ourselves.  A Little Help wants our older adults to continue to take pride in their homes and yards. However, we understand that many household and yard chores can become difficult with age, illness, or injury. Volunteers can give help and advice with the tasks listed below. 

Gardening and Yard Work:

  • Watering indoor & 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
