The Seniors' Home and Yard Maintenance Program is run by the Yukon Council on Aging and is funded by Yukon Housing Corporation. Its goal is to allow seniors, elders and disabled persons to remain in their own homes by making available a pool of workers to assist in doing those jobs that every homeowner faces. Some examples are: lawn and yard maintenance including lawn mowing, raking, cleaning flowerbeds, or gardens, assisting with planting, splitting and stacking wood, minor carpentry or painting, snow shovelling and window washing. Examples inside the home include, vacuuming, dusting and washing walls.
Although there is a cost to the senior/elder associated with this service, our goal is to provide workers for a fair and reasonable rate. The price for each job is negotiated directly between the Client and the Worker. In an effort to supply a secure workforce to our Clients, all worker applicants must have a background check completed by the RCMP.
If you have any questions, or for further information please contact us at our phone number: 667 - HELP (4357).
Our office hours are from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Monday thru Friday.
There is a voice mailbox on this number so you can leave a message any time day or night, should you reach the recording. We will return your call before we leave the office or in the case of after hours calls, we will call you the following business day.
