The Seniors’ Resource Center in Evergreen is offering a home cleaning service called CHORES for elderly people who need occasional assistance. The program, which is free of charge, can be used three times a year for home projects such as deep cleaning, organizing closets, and trash cleanup and removal at residences.

The only requirement for eligibility for the CHORES program is that a person be at least 60 years old. 

“We have one fabulous employee who gives a lot of help with moving and cleaning,” said Nancy Tzeng, coordinator of the CHORES program.

Many of the requests for the service are from people who are moving to a senior retirement facility such as Rocky Mountain Village, she said.

While the program does offer valued assistance with cleaning, workers do not perform repairs, mow lawns, shovel snow or shampoo carpets. 

The CHORES program is funded by a grant from the Denver Regional Council of Governments and matching funds provided by the SRC.

To schedule an appointment for CHORES services, call 720-236-1170 or send an e-mail to Nancy Tzeng at ntzeng@srcaging.org.

The Evergreen SRC also offers regular house cleaning service for a fee of $25 an hour to area residents, as well as many other services, including in-home care that includes light housekeeping, meal preparation and assistance with bathroom needs.

An adult day care program is also available at the Evergreen SRC along with transportation services.

The last Friday of each month a community lunch is available to residents for a $5 fee at the Open Café of the Evergreen center.
