JFS Fix-It Service

Home Safety Modifications

We fix things up around the house, to help you lead a safe and independent life at home.

When you or someone you care about is concerned about fall prevention, JFS Fix-It Service provides a four-point safety check, along with minor safety repairs and modifications to improve your mobility and security at home. All services are completed free-of-charge by our pre-screened team of volunteers.

Take the Next Step

“You people don’t just install grab bars and handrails – you provide peace of mind. To a family like mine, that’s spread out, that sense of security is invaluable.”

What Our Team Can Do

  • Minor plumbing and electrical work.
  • Install/repair doorbells.
  • Mount outdoor security lights.
  • Provide slip-resistant bathmats.
  • Door and window screen repairs.
  • Check/replace door locks and deadbolts.
  • Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Install assistive devices such as grab bars, hand rails, shower chairs, toilet seat risers and bedside commodes.
