La Plata County Senior Services is fortunate to be able to offer a Home Chore Program. Our goal is to help seniors stay safe in their home as long as possible. This program is designed for residents age 60 + who find it difficult to complete certain tasks on their own. For home modifications the home must be owned by the senior. The scope of our work includes: installation of grab bars, handrails, correction of trip hazards, minor step and porch repair, small home repairs, heavy house cleaning, spring and fall yard clean-ups and limited snow removal assistance. Ramps are reviewed on a case by case basis. Safety assessments are available by our experienced Home Chore workers.
Unfortunately, our scope of services is limited and we are not able to address roof repairs, structural problems such as foundation issues, major furnace, plumbing or electric problems or well and septic issues.
We have partnered with faith based and service groups like the Rotary Clubs to provide firewood for low income families within the county and larger home chore projects.
The cost: The suggested donation for Home Chore Services is $15.00 per hour for labor. Since our funding is limited, we appreciate having consumers cover the cost of supplies.
Please call our Home Chore Coordinator for more information at 970-382-6442.
