A team of volunteers came together on Saturday, June 1, to help approximately 35 senior homeowners. The team helped old people with gardening, minor repair, patching, painting, cleaning, and minor renovation during the 29th annual Home Repair event run by Senior Coastsiders. Some of the volunteers celebrated the day of community building for the first time, while others have been serving for a long time.

Volunteers showed their skills, especially home renovation and modern deck skirting. Each was assigned to a particular project. Some local businesses made a partnership with them to sponsor things, donate financially and share expertise for some complicated projects. Most of the projects were simple and required only gardening skills. The senior people were on a tight budget, and continued rains had made everything unmanageable in their perimeters.

Painting projects were common, as volunteers have painted decks and skirting on a number of homes. Hundreds of feet of handrail was installed during the day on several sets of stairs. In addition, dozens of grab bars were put into showers and bathtubs. One senior citizen who is restricted to a wheelchair was unable to access her deck for many years. She once again was able to enjoy the shade of her favorite tree.

Another citizen took benefit from the installation of a wheelchair lift that is allowing her to get in and out of her home without any problem. The volunteers have also changed the batteries of dozens of smoke detectors. In addition, they also changed out light bulbs and bad gate latches.

Mesothelioma is lung cancer that is caused by the naturally occurring asbestos mineral.

Many asbestos victims are filing claims through Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. which is a law firm and has helped many mesothelioma patients to get claims to cover their medical expenses.
