Proviso Township provides a FREE Handyman Program is available to senior homeowners and disabled residents of Proviso Township.
The Handyman will be available to provide advice and referral on a variety of home maintenance issues. In addition, he will be able to do minor repairs for a fuel surcharge of $5.00 per visit plus the cost of parts, if needed.
Things like a leaky faucet or a toilet that keeps running, replacing the refrigerator bulb or the light at the top of the stairs that you just can’t reach are some examples of the ways in which they can help. They can even hang that new picture of the grandchildren or fix that squeaking door hinge.
The Handyman is here to help you do all of those things you used to do for yourself but just can’t manage anymore, all those simple things that can make life just a little brighter. So next time you find yourself frustrated by some annoying problem around the house, don’t get angry, call the Handyman!
For more information, you can reach the Handyman office at 708-547-4001 or through Proviso Township contact page.
NOTE: Some discretion is required so as not to create a bigger problem in the process of attempting a repair or maintenance. Homeowner MUST sign authorization form before any work can be performed.

In partnership with American Taxi Dispatch, the Village of Berkeley offers Senior Coupons. To participate, you must be a Berkeley resident and at least 62 years old. Each coupon book has a $10.00 value. The senior pays the Village of Berkeley $5.00 for each coupon book. Seniors may use any combination of cash and coupons to pay the full fare to the driver. The driver will turn in the coupons redeemed to American Taxi to be reimbursed. American Taxi will then bill the Village of Berkeley. Coupons can be used for any trip including airport trips. To register for the program and to have your picture taken for your photo ID visit Berkeley Village Hall. For more information call 708-449-8840.
The Village offers the RUOK Program for elderly, latch key children, handicapped and home bound residents. With the program, calls are made through the computer every day of the week, unless otherwise specified. For convenience, the resident can select the time they are called and can schedule call interruptions (no call dates) in cases of vacation, special occasion, weekly schedules, hospitalizations, etc. The system notifies us if a resident is not contacted after three attempts within an hour. In this case, a patrol officer will be dispatched to the home to assess the physical well-being of the individual.
For more information, contact the Berkeley Police Department at 708-449-8224.
