A helping hand...

Assistance for those 60 years old and over with short-term tasks that can be burdensome, stressful or unsafe.  Examples include:

  • Replacing light bulbs & batteries
  • Yard work
  • Minor carpentry
  • Organizing/cleaning
  • Delivering food, medication, or other goods

We also provide referral services for on-going services such as lawn care, snow removal and housekeeping.

Clients are asked to share in the cost of chore services by making a suggested donation determined from a sliding fee scale based on monthly income. This cost share ranges from $4 to $25 per hour of service provided. Chore Service clients receive a letter at the end of the month calculating their cost share, but please know that Care Partners is pleased to provide these services whether or not a contribution is made. We trust that our clients value these services, and will contribute as they are able, when they are able.

To arrange help, call 387-3788 or e-mail info@carepartnersofcookcounty.org for more information.
