Many of us want to stay in our own home for as long as possible. It’s a big part of retaining independence.
However, adaptations, improvements, extensions or repairs may be needed to meet changes in our circumstances and to maintain safe and comfortable surroundings. This does not necessarily involve major projects. Relatively small and simple refurbishments or adaptations can make big differences.

Care & Repair Home Improvement Service offers practical support, advice and guidance on work which suits your long term needs including:

  • Bathroom adaptations, especially installation of level access showers or conversions to wet rooms
  • Home extensions
  • Windows & doors
  • Electrical upgrades
  • Heating and plumbing
  • Roofing and guttering repair
