Home Maintenance Service

The Charleville Home Maintenance Service's goals are to maximise the quality of life, safety and independence of the target group and their carers; to prevent the premature or inappropriate long term institutionalisation of eligible clients; and to provide safe, secure and maintenance free environments to them.

 

The objectives of the service are to provide lawn and yard maintenance and house maintenance services that are health and safety related.

Maintenance
