CHORE SERVICES BY FRIENDS OF NEWTOWN SENIORS…WHAT IS THIS?
Friends of Newtown Seniors (FONS) has developed a program to assist seniors in being able to remain in their homes independently, safely and comfortably. Chore Services can help seniors with a variety of chores around the house. From replacing batteries in smoke detectors, changing window screens, fixing furniture, light landscaping, dump runs, to more major projects, we can assist you in finding some help.
We have FONS volunteers who can assist with some of the minor chores, and those can be done at no charge, but we would not refuse a donation. For the more major repairs, including electrical, plumbing, carpentry, installation of grab bars or railings, remodeling, etc. , we can provide you with a list of vetted, highly recommended professionals. Fees for those services are based on the individual contractor you use, and this is not free.
FONS is also seeking additional volunteers who would like to participate in this program. If you are interested, please give us a call at 203-430-0633.
The important thing is to not let the small issues go until they become large problems. Call if you need help with something and we can assist you in getting the job done.
