"HABITAT FOR SAFE SENIORS ENVIRONMENTAL CLEANUP" PROGRAM
Canyon Lake, Texas, USA.
"This program ensures that the surrounding home environment remains safe for the resident and does not attract unwanted pests, cause a fire hazard, or risk injury to the Senior."
The “Habitat for Safe Seniors Environmental Clean Up” Program provides free yard cleaning service to seniors who are unable to complete the physical activity necessary to up keep their yard. Volunteers cut down overgrown yards preventing them from becoming a fire hazard during times of drought.
The community will also benefit directly by having unsightly yards maintained and free from rodents, roaches, etc.
A home site visit is made by a “Habitat for Safe Seniors” volunteer to assess the seniors home safety situation and estimates material, labor, and equipment to complete the project.
“Habitat for Safe Seniors” also helps seniors through the “Environmental Beautification” Program which gathers excess plants and flowers from nurseries and growers and distributes them to seniors who plant gardens. Gardening provides seniors with a daily activity and also improves the look of the entire community.
