North Central Caregivers

On an annual basis, we work with North Central Caregivers to provide small maintenance needs for older adults, helping them remain independent in their own homes.  This includes cleaning, doing laundry, arranging furniture, and other small maintenance repairs so they can move around in their house. In 2010, we were awarded the Northern Central Caregivers for the Austin Groups for the Elderly Community Service (AGE) award. See our acceptance speech.
