Help Seniors with Minor Home Repairs

Save to Favorites


Help seniors live safely in their homes by assisting with minor repairs and projects such as replacing a light bulb or smoke detector, fixing a railing or step, changing out a door knob, or installing a safety bar. You can decide which projects you would like to help with based on your interests and/or experience!

ElderHelp clients want to continuing living in their own homes for as long as possible. Volunteers who assist with home safety related projects play a critical role in this process, allowing seniors to continue living in a safe environment, reducing fall risks and hospitalizations.

Opportunity Requirements & Important Notes

Time Commitment: A few hours each month, depending on the projects that come up, and a volunteer's availability.

Onboarding Process: Application, online orientation, background check, driving record check, interview and references.

Attire: Casual and appropriate.

Physical Requirements: Assisting with home safety related repairs may involve some physical activity such as lifting, bending, moving items, or using specific tools.

Required Skills/Experience: Experience is not required, however a general understanding of home repairs can be helpful when completing home safety related projects.

Desired Skills/Experience: If volunteers are interested in helping with larger projects such as installing a safety bar (grab bar), experience with different types of wall materials can be helpful, but is not required. Training is available.

Location: Specific details will be provided for each project. The location would be the senior's home, so this information varies. ElderHelp clients live in Central San Diego, areas in East County, and North County.
