Home Maintenance and Gardening

Having a home that is in good repair goes a long way to keeping you safe and comfortable. You may be finding this difficult to maintain and have no-one to help you. However, there are services available that may be able to assist you to improve security and undertake repairs and adaptations.

The installation of adaptations and equipment such as hand rails and grabrails is referred through Adult Social Care, telephone 01325 406111 or the Hospital Occupational Therapy Service, telephone 01325 380100. For more information visit the Adaptations and Equipment webpage.
