Repairs With Care

Providing a safe living environment is critical to those who wish to Age In Place.  Partners In Care’s Repairs With Care Volunteers help with tasks such as installing bathroom grab bars, repairing broken steps, changing a lightbulb, or replacing the battery in a smoke-detector. They can also help with “honey-do” items such as replacing a toilet stopper or fixing a leaking faucet, all to help fellow Members feel safe and secure in their homes.
