independently in their homes in an environment which is healthy,
safe and secure.
We provide the following services for older people
and people who have disabilities or who are on a low income:
- advice and assistance on adapting, repairing, and improving
- a handyperson service.
We also provide a Careline alarm service which
provides emergency assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year
at a reasonable weekly charge, and which is available to
Care & Repair works in partnership with
FirstStop. This is a Government-funded organisation which provides
older people and their carers with advice on care, housing, finance
