Field Handyman Service

For a lot of older people, ageing in their own home offers independence and a sense of pride in being able to manage by themselves.  But as we age it can be difficult to complete the small jobs around our house, which means these jobs will often go uncompleted or the older person will put themselves at risk of injury and falls by trying to complete the job themselves.

Our Handyman Field Worker assists by completing small household jobs such as: checking and changing smoke alarm batteries; hanging curtains; changing light bulbs; replacing tap washers; fixing cupboard hinges, hanging pictures etc.

Our Handyman Field Worker is also able to provide the older people he assists with information about other services and the help and support available to them in the community. This in turn, helps older people to continue to live independently for longer.

Our Field Handyman Service operates in Counties Manukau. If you would like more information about this service you can contact Brett by emailing or calling us on    09 279 4331.

Betty is 77 and lives alone, with no family support nearby. Betty has always been very independent and reluctant to ask anyone for help.  However, when Betty almost fell off a chair trying to change a light bulb, she realised she needed to ask for some help with a few jobs around her house. Betty phoned our Counties Manukau office and asked if we knew of any where she could get help with some small tasks around her house. We told her about our Handyman Field Worker Service and put her through to Brett, our Handyman, who arranged a time to pop out and complete the jobs.  Brett was able to assist Betty to change several lightbulbs, replace a tap washer, lower a shelf and check her smoke alarm batteries. Betty was delighted because she hadn’t known how she was going to get these jobs done.
