The South Madison Coalition of the Elderly dedicated to the independence of older adults

Volunteer Home Chore Program

The Volunteer Home Chore Program assists frail, limited-income older adults in need of help with simple chores around the house. Our Home Chore Volunteers help older adults with housework such as cleaning floors, washing dishes, doing laundry and taking out garbage. At the same time, they provide the older adult with some friendly social contact. Occasionally, our volunteers do minor home repairs or garden work.

Volunteers are matched with older adults in a one-on-one situation. Matches are based on the particular needs of the older adult as well as on the interests and time constraints of the volunteers. Older adults in need of this service can call 608-251-8405.

Individuals or groups interested in volunteering to help older adults can see more details on our Volunteer Needs page.
