Lawn mow­ing ser­vice set to con­tinue

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.”
