• Chore Services

    Chore workers come into the home to provide the following non-medical help as needed: housekeeping, shopping, laundry, cooking, yard maintenance and minor home repair – and a break for family caregivers.  Chore programs target those who are 60 and over.  There is no charge for services although donations based upon the family’s income level are encouraged.  Local workers with appropriate skills should apply.
