Small household repairs can help keep you safe and living in your home
Did you know that falling is the leading cause of emergency room visits by older adults?
In many cases, a simple home improvement or repair - such as better lighting or a grab bar, can keep you or your loved one safe. CHORE is a resource to people living in Rockland County who are 60 years of age or older, or a person living with a disability, regardless of age or income status. CHORE helps people to maintain the independence of living at home by providing free minor household repairs and home improvements that make living at home safe.
