Senior Program

Homeowners age 62+ can get personalized assistance in assessing their repair needs and contracting repairs. We also teach workshops for seniors.

Free Grab Bars

HRRC currently has a (limited) supply of grab bars to give away. They’re 12″ long by 1.25″ in diameter, or 18′ long by 1.25″ in diameter. So if you, or someone you know, could use one for the bathroom or somewhere else in the home, please contact David Brock at (216) 381-6100 ext. 22 or dbrock@hrrc-ch.org. (Unfortunately we don’t install them).

Seniors who come to HRRC benefit from: MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Help applying for financial assistance for repairs

  • 90-minute Home inspections to assess repair needs, prioritize what needs done, and plan for “aging in place” issues

  • Help with reviewing contractor estimates

  • Inspection of completed work

Our skilled staff not only focuses on home repairs, but also giving advice to homeowners on how to recognize changing physical needs AND plan for aging-in-place.  Thoughtful planning on adapting the physical environment can often allow seniors to live at home longer–safely and independently.
