Group Helps Seniors Stay in Homes

A newly formed volunteer group in Bardstown is helping seniors stay in their homes. Bardstown at Home is still in its infancy, but since the nonprofit organization got its first client in early September, it’s taken on 19 more, and about the same number of volunteers. It reaches out to Nelson County residents who are 55 and older, and the services it provides are multifold: volunteers aid clients in everything from transportation and social opportunities to home maintenance and cooking. Volunteers will even come out to help clients change a light bulb.
