Residents needing home repair, lawn service or personal care can request help through a senior services program in Wichita that employs older workers.

The program is called In-Home Support Services. Senior Employment Program Director Cherie Wenderott-Shields says the workers are 55 and older, and they go through a screening process.

“We've got handymen, we've got caregivers, we have housekeepers, cooks – anything that you can think of that a senior would request needing help in their home with,” Wenderott-Shields says.
