Senior Community Services offers a Household & Outdoor Maintenance (HOME) Program designed to help allow older adults to remain in the homes and communities they love.

Bloomington residents aged 60 and older may apply for services. Some services are free. Rates for paid services are based on income and ability to pay. No one is denied service based on ability to pay. Here are some examples of the services offered:

  • Handyperson tasks such as minor repairs, carpentry and painting projects.

  • Home safety checks.

  • Housekeeping such as sweeping, dusting, vacuuming, laundry.

  • Lawn mowing and snow removal.

  • Other yard services including spring and fall clean-up.

  • Technology support by phone, in designated locations and some in-person services.

HOME is always seeking volunteers. Residents are encouraged to sign up to help out a neighbor. For more information about services or volunteering, call 952-746-4046 or visit
