Post subject:  Disabled Senior Needs a Handyman!

I hate having to ask for help but after having a total of 8 surgeries in just the past 4 years the time has come when I realize that I no longer am able to do certain things for myself! So if there is someone who might be interested in either volunteering or perhaps is willing to even offer a slightly reduced price, I would appreciate it more than you know. I have been a part of this community for over 35 years and want to stay up here for as long as I can. So this is a list of items that I am hoping someone can help with:

Gutters cleaned (one joint needs to be repaired)
Hang a smoke detector on the ceiling
Change a light bulb on the kitchen ceiling
Power wash a single-car garage floor (to clean out a few years of accumulated dried mud)
Driveway graded (it's slowly being washed out by the rain and will soon be impassible)
Cut down two dead trees
Remove a small pile of boards from my property
And here's the biggie....I would love to have my decks sanded and stained (I already have the stain)! This hasn't been done in years and really needs it. There is one small deck that has already been sanded and now just needs to be stained.

I know this seems like a lot, but I would be so happy just to have even a couple of things done. Thanks to anyone who may have the time to help!

Help please! I am needing to hire someone who can grade my driveway today! It got washed out and
I am currently stuck and cannot get out! I am in Elk Creek Highlands, off of 43 and 47 on Gold Flake
Terrace! Thanks!


By the way, I just contacted Park County's Senior Coalition and they really don't offer
any kind of "hands on" help aside from light housekeeping, meal preparation, etc.! They
seem to focus more on transportation assistance instead. I had hoped to possibly get
some referrals as to who might be able to help with other kinds of home projects but
they do not have any kind of a referral program. But thanks anyway for the suggestion!

Someone just came out and is breaking up the dirt with a shovel right now! And someone else just posted a referral
to a "Hal" (Phydeau) earlier this morning who I plan to call today for a full driveway grading! Also I have already
posted a few items on Neighbors Helping Neighbors that need some attention, but really no response. But thanks again!
I always appreciate your help!
