ITHACA, N.Y. ––The leaves are falling, and snow will soon follow, and many seniors are not able to remove the leaves and snow from their yards and sidewalks without assistance. To accommodate the needs of seniors in our community, the Tompkins County Office for the Aging maintains a list of individuals who would be willing to do fall yard work and snow shoveling for older adults.

Wet slippery leaves, deep snow and icy sidewalks are dangerous for everyone but especially for people with mobility difficulties. The office is currently updating its list and is in need of more workers. We are especially in need of people who are willing to work in places outside of the City of Ithaca and in rural areas.

If you are interested in assisting older adults with yard work or by shoveling or plowing, on either a paid or volunteer basis, please call the Tompkins County Office for the Aging at 274- 5482.

If your name was listed last year, and you would like to be listed again, please notify us.
