We’re proud to have a home repair/maintenance program for older adults who are either physically and/or financially unable to perform minor, routine home maintenance tasks and repairs. The resourceful Tool Team is ready to help older adults age 60+.

The Tool Team proudly helps with safety repairs including installation of grab bars in bathtubs, replace batteries in smoke detector’s, repair of minor household items (changing of light bulbs, weather stripping etc.)

As we get older, it can be more difficult to reach the ceiling to replace a burned-out light bulb. Perhaps you’d feel safer if you had a grab bar installed in your shower. These are things the Tool Team can help with!

Why leave minor home repair or maintenance to someone you don’t know? Let the Tool Team become a trusted resource for you! The performance of such minor home maintenance projects and repairs promotes your overall safety and well-being by reducing the risk of injury or improving accessibility. Simple upgrades can improve your home’s energy efficiency and structural integrity.
