Courteous Help On Repairs Economically (CHORE) Program

A minor home repair and chore service operates with volunteers from the Natick community including working individuals, students, and retirees. This service is coordinated through the Human Services and Council On Aging's Volunteer Coordinators. This service assists eligible seniors and people with disabilities who desire to remain in their own homes independently. Volunteers will help people with small tasks around the house that they, or a family member, are not able to perform. These minor tasks might include, but are not be limited to:
  • Minor electrical repair (doorbells, phone jacks)
  • Minor plumbing (leaking toilets/faucets, plugged drains, replace washers)
  • Minor carpentry (repair door handles, hinges, locks, steps, railings, screens)
  • Minor chores (put in or take down screens/storm windows, replace smoke detector batteries, change light bulbs, set up new appliances such as VCRs or answering machines)

Work that cannot be performed would include:
  • Gardening
