Group seeks to help seniors stay at home
A local group, Staying at Home, is interested in establishing a system that would help senior citizens stay in their homes as long as possible. A questionnaire distributed earlier this year had a good response and the group is looking for providers who are interested in participating in this program.
The most important needs indicated on the survey include computer assistance, house cleaning, post-storm cleanup, gutters, meal preparation, transportation, handyman, medical bill assistance, window cleaning, home care and pet sitting.
If you are interested in providing one of these services or can refer someone, send your name, address, phone number and two local references to Staying at Home, 3090 East Overlook Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
