Homeowners age 62+ can get personalized assistance in assessing their repair needs and contracting repairs through our Senior Repair Program. Participants will benefit from:

  • 90-minute home inspections to assess and prioritize repair needs and “aging in place” issues
  • help with reviewing contractor estimates
  • inspection of completed work
  • special workshops for seniors

Senior Repair ClassParticipation fee: Residents of Cleveland Heights, University Heights, and South Euclid are eligible to attend one class and receive a 90-minute in-home repair consultation with HRRC’s Senior Repair Specialist for $25.  Residents of other communities may attend one class and receive a 90-minute consultation here in our office for $35. (There is a modest charge for additional classes.) To register for a class or home inspection, call Wesley Walker at (216) 381-6100, ext. 22 or email wwalker@hrrc-ch.org.

The Senior Repair Program will not only focus on home repairs; homeowners will be advised on how to plan for changing physical needs. Thoughtful planning on adapting the physical environment can often allow seniors to live at home longer–safely and independently.

The addition of a Senior Repair Specialist to HRRC’s staff has been made possible through grants from the McGregor Foundation and the United Black Fund.
