Keeping Our Senior’s Home Safe And Sound


Any homeowner will tell you that there is always something that needs to be fixed when you own a home. But for seniors who live alone, keeping up on minor home repairs as easy as a leaky faucet is sometimes an impossible task. So they live with the problem.

We know it is important for seniors to stay independent and living in their own home as long as possible. So we want to do what we can to help them keep up with those small repairs that can pop up – especially those repairs that can cause a safety issue.

What Is The Minor Home Repair Service?

DSCC has skilled and knowledgeable staff who provide small home repairs that are usually too minor to call a contractor. Our maintenance team offers small home repair services for our seniors for just $40 an hour.

Our team goes out to the senior’s home, provides an estimate and then will fix the issue leaving the senior with their problem fixed and with less stress and worry.

What Kind Of Repairs Are Considered Small Home Repairs?

From small repairs that keep our seniors safe to outside fixes, our team helps keep our seniors safe and comfortable in their homes.
