Home maintenance > Handyperson /odd jobs

Odd jobs around the home can often be difficult for elderly people, especially if they don’t have family or neighbours to help. Jobs around the home can be undertaken by local tradespeople, although many Home Improvement Agencies and other voluntary organisations offer a service. Help with small household jobs like fixing curtain rails, replacing light sockets and switches, resealing baths, replacing sash cords, shelving, replacing locks, fixing dripping taps, fixing sticking doors, and assembling flat pack furniture can make a great difference to the life of an older person. Help with these small household jobs can make living independently a reality for older people.

Handyperson services may also profide help with gardening and decorating.
