Garden help

Keeping a garden tidy can be a difficult job, even for the young, fit and able-bodied. YOURLifeChoices subscriber, Vivien, wants to know where those who are less able can obtain help to keep their garden in order.

Q. Vivien

I work at a garden supplies/hire place. Last week an elderly pensioner called in to see if we had a lawn edger to hire. We didn’t so I suggested he hire a whipper-snipper. That wasn’t an option for him as he isn’t as able-bodied as he used to be. Is there anyone he can contact to do a little job for him like edging the lawn for a cheap rate or voluntary? I really felt for him and would like to help him if I can.

A.

How lovely for you to care so much. I would suggest contacting your local Commonwealth Carelink Centre who will be able to advise which services are in the area and how you qualify for them.
