Services

We're a Berkeley-based non-profit that provides affordable safety net services to Seniors and People with Disabilities, empowering them to live independently in their own homes. We offer 24/7 Emergency Attendant Care, private pay attendant matching, accessible transportation, affordable wheelchair repair, and free roadside assistance for wheelchair users.

In-Home Care

Emergency Personal Care Attendants

Serving Berkeley Residents

Our emergency attendants are on standby to step in to assist Berkeley residents with severe physical disabilities who have an unforeseen crisis or disruption in their regular in-home care support system. Our experienced and qualified staff provide assistance with urgent activities of daily living when no other caregiver is available.

Attendant Matching

Serving Berkeley Residents

Our Case Managers assist Berkeley Residents with severe physical disabilities to find and maintain quality in-home care workers, build skills, and rely on Easy Does It emergency services as little as possible. We provide referrals to community services and maintain a list of disability-related resources.

The March Update

by Trevor Jacobson | Mar 20, 2024 | Monthly Update

Welcome to March, friends of Easy Does It.

The weather is just getting better, so we’re getting closer to another summer filled with community events and outreach activities. We’re all quite excited to get back out into the sun and to connect new potential clients with our safety net services in order to help them to live independently in their own home. Among the topics this month: EDI is looking for volunteers for our Board of Directors; we have a wheelchair repair workshop next week at the Downtown Berkeley Library, and we’re preparing for our first online Community Meeting of the year. We also have a wealth of resources to share from our friends at Soul Space, The CIL, and WBFWC.
