Making life a little easier…
What we do
Care & Repair is a home improvement agency that has been providing independent living advice and support services since 2004. Supporting the members of our community with care needs across Knowsley, our aim is to assist the community to live independently in their homes for longer and provide a trusted place for the people to go for advice. We will also tailor our service to meet your needs, whether you’re a homeowner, private tenant or live in social housing.
Assessments + Adaptations
Each of our assessors are trained to carry out medical assessments for low level adaptations in your home. When an assessment is completed, there is a range of things that will be looked at such as:
- + much more
The adaptations we provide range from:
- Stair rails
- Grab rails
- Installing steps into the property
- Perching stools
- + much more!
If your needs are above the low level adaptations we can provide, we’ll be sure to refer you onto the correct team who can assist you further!
If you need works doing in your home, but you have a family member or you yourself aren’t confident in getting a tradesman to do it, we can help! Our friendly Property Services Officer will arrange to visit you in your home to advise you on the works you would like carried out and the best approach to take. Care & Repair have a list of trusted tradesmen which helps prevent scams or rogue tradesmen in our local community. Our Property Services Officer will help see the job through from start to finish!
