I am 69 and have recently developed a heart condition. My husband is 71 and has 100% disability from the service. Is there a group or agency which could provide help like that. We can afford to possibly pay someone at a reasonable rate or to supplement the pay the person gets from the group or agency which hires them. We want to stay in our home at least for a few years longer. Can you recommend someone or some group who could help?

Pam Z is right, find out who is cutting grass for other neighbors. Better to get an established, local, regular service with a good reputation than to pick through the ads.

I tried to go to website but got nowhere! Do you know if they have their own website?
I wanted to find some help with household and gardening chores. This looks like it is only a senior assisted living place. We want to stay in our own home as long as possible. Thanks for the answer I will try driving over there to see if I can get help from them.

When my dad was no longer able to do the outside work I asked some of thier neighbors for reccomendations. Worked out very well for us. I paid them even after the folks moved in with me while we were selling the house. If you are on a limited budget. and belong to a church or service group ( like the Masons or Knights of Columbus, etc) maybe they can get you some help?

I bet you could find some good suggestions from the people here as they are local folks.

I believe this is in your town. Careful who you let into your home. I cant believe the scammers that were calling Mom on her phone before I re-recorded her answering machine message. They sure know how to target the elderly.
