Lawn mowing service set to continue
LONG summer days in the north mean long, fast growing grass which can quickly become unmanageable – but there is good news for seniors and people with a disability.
The State Government is extending a trial of Home Assist Secure’s mowing service into 2017.
Minister for Housing and Public Works Mick de Brenni said the reintroduction of lawn mowing services for Home Assist Secure (HAS) clients had proven to be a valued service.
The trial, which included the Tablelands, was announced in May 2016.
“Helping people stay in their own homes is important to people’s wellbeing, and means they can stay connected to friends, neighbours and their community,” he said.
“Yard maintenance can be a real struggle for people who are older or who have a disability, but we all want to live in a home that feels like home, that we can be proud of.”
