A number of agencies offer home maintenance services for seniors and adults with disabilities. For outdoor maintenance such as grass cutting and snow removal, agencies often arrange for students to do the work for a fee. For indoor work such as installing grab bars, agencies arrange for handypersons to do the work for a fee. Rates vary by the hour or by service required. Contact the agency directly to confirm costs and other details.

The City of Toronto provides snow clearing assistance to eligible residents. See listing for details.
