Interesting fact: A nursing home stay costs $75,000-$100,000 per year. A study by the Weintraub Foundation showed that home repairs help an elderly person live at home for 13 months longer than expected (K. Walker, Baltimore Sun, 2012)
Terry O’Connor, George Ann Muller and Harvey Rappaport are the Tuesday, Chore Van #1 team.
Mrs. C writes: “I’m sending a B-I-G thank you to your organization and volunteers. I didn’t know what to expect when I scheduled my repairs, and I was a little apprehensive. When I saw your team of 3 volunteers with warm smiles and name tags displayed, I immediately felt at ease. The speed and expertise with which they fixed everything—from a dangerous protruding screw on a doorplate, to installing a lock, to tightening a toilet seat—was most impressive.”
