Senior Home Services - 1Q 2020 Volunteer Appreciation

Chesterfield Council on Aging – Senior Home Services Update

Senior Home Services provides home assistance repairs and services to Qualified Senior Residents and Residents with Disabilities using volunteer labor in Chesterfield County.


Commonwealth Waste Solutions provided services to a resident in need of septic tank cleaning.

Chesterfield Juvenile Detention Life Changing Academy – Volunteers (members and staff) provided yardwork services for a Senior’s home, working to reduce a safety hazard of wet leaves on the walkways. Thanks to these young people who are working to make a positive change to themselves and one of our county Seniors.  

New Life United Methodist Church provided volunteers to clean debris from 2 resident’s yards and installed a front porch step bannister for the resident’s safety.

Ironbridge Baptist Church volunteers finished a series of safety improvements at a Senior’s home.

Ace Handyman Services provided plumbing assistance to two area Seniors, stopping leaks and restoring a working toilet to the home.

Project Homes contractor teams installed accessibility modifications for an area senior and made home improvement repairs to another’s mobile home. Their volunteer teams assisted another Senior with yard debris/junk removal.  

And as Mr. Rogers would say – “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Thank you to these organizations who are helping make our Senior’s lives safer and more comfortable as they age in their own homes.
