Best Answer

I would help out the elderly and I know many others that would. The question is whether the 'problems' are actually problems, i.e. safety / fire hazards, or normal electrical work. I don't think anyone will do normal work for free, but fire hazards and life safety issues should be taken care of. I'm an electrician, and it's my responsibility to see that people's homes are safe before I go home at night.

Try your local senior center. They have lists of volunteers that may be able to help.

Electric repair help for elderly

The U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development [HUD] often funds home repair programs in communities that are operated by County and Township [City, Borough, etc] authorities.

The License and Inspection departments of these municipal authorities may be able to provide guidance.

There are sometimes reduced rate loan programs available through local government agencies.

What are the problems of having an elderly population?

The problems about having an elderly population is that in an elderly population, the older you are, the body can't function as well as it used to when it was younger. The brain can't calulate information as fast. Since the body is weaker, the old people can't escape situations as quickly. For example, if they trip on something, they will have trouble getting back up. Also, bones of the elderly can break more easily. Nationwise, more money would have to go toward healthcare to make sure the elderly don't die. Also, elderly people would be less interested in big changes (sometimes they like to keep things the old-fashioned way). I think that in the future someday that the elderly bodies could be fixed and renewed to the same behaviors of younger bodies via... nanobots! So, in the future we could have an elderly population without the negative consequences.
