Senior Watch: EZ Fix Program 

In Today’s Senior Watch, Rob Crone is the Director of Nutrition and Auxiliary Services at Eastern Area Agency on Aging. He joined Carolyn Callahan on TV5 News at Noon to talk about the EZ Fix program.The program EZ Fix helps with minor home repair and cleaning services. The program has been opened up to everyone regardless of age, for a flat hourly rate of $20. This will help everyone who needs a handyman but doesn’t know who to hire or trust.
