Residential Repair Program For Smithtown Senior Citizens

Written By: KPN - Jan• 09•17

 Are you a Smithtown resident?  Are you a senior citizen?  Can you use the assistance of a “handyman”?  The Smithtown Senior Citizens Department can help you!

We employ a crew of experienced maintenance personnel who provide a variety of minor home repair services to our senior citizen residents. For example, they repair leaky faucets and running toilets, install locks and door bells, make adjustments on doors, replace light fixtures and switches, change hard to reach light bulbs, install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, install bathroom grab bars and more!

All requests are handled on a first come, first served basis with preference given to safety related  jobs. Emergency services are not provided and “cosmetic” work is not part of our program.

Laura Greif, Program Director explains, “We strive to assist our senior citizen residents with the everyday maintenance of their homes with a focus on the elements that keep them safe and secure.”

Our Residential Repair Program assists seniors age 60 and older.  While there is no charge for labor, participants pay for, or provide, all materials.  Funding for this program is provided by the New York State Office for the Aging, the Suffolk County Office for the Aging and the Town of Smithtown.
