Everybody loves autumn! It’s not as cold as winter and the colorful leaves are wonderful to view. Autumn is the time of year to prepare for the coming winter. Preparing for winter involves a number of time-consuming and physically demanding chores: cleaning up your garden and yard, and cleaning out your gutters to name a few. Everyone is not blessed with youth and strength and if you have a hard time doing these tasks just think about your dear elderly family members and neighbors. They don’t possess the agility and strength any longer, so cleaning gutters can be a monumental and possibly, dangerous task for them.
We become so involved with our own chores that sometimes forget about them. These people have been a part of our lives for a long time and we tend to think they are doing just fine without us when in reality they need our help as much as we needed them when we were young. So why not return the favor? Take care of your seniors, make their work easier by installing gutter guards on their house. And not only your grandma and grandpa, how about the senior couple that lives across the street? Do something nice for that sweet couple that has always come to help you when they could. Climbing up ladders to clean the roof and gutters can be risky, even riskier for older people, and volunteering to clean everyone’s gutters takes a lot of time. The most convenient solution is to get gutter guards, that way a dreaded task will be turned into a easy one.
Make a thoughtful gesture and help your loved ones this month. Install gutter guards on their home and make their holidays risk-free. No more worrying about them and feeling guilty that you can’t help.
