General information

Service offered: At Care and Repair we aim to help people to remain living at home independently and safely, with confidence and dignity, in their own community. We provide support and advice to people over the age of 60 and disabled people of any age, who are home owners or tenants of private landlords throughout Dumfries and Galloway. The Care and Repair team offers free, confidential, independent advice to clients, assisting them to carry out disabled adaptations to their homes. We support clients from the start of a project through to completion with grant applications, work specifications, contractor tenders and project management. The service receives funding to provide grants for adaptations to allow people to continue to live safely in their own homes. In order to receive a grant one must be referred to Care and Repair from the Occupational Therapy Team, Social Work Services, Dumfries and Galloway Health and Social Care Partnership. The typical works carried out are stairlifts, through the floor lifts, external step lifts, wet floor showers, ramps and hoists.

Target group: Older people or disabled people of any age who are home owners or private tenants.
