Simple adaptions to the home can make a huge difference to the health and wellbeing of our older and most vulnerable residents.

Our handyperson service helps people to stay living independently in their homes for longer. We can help with hand rails, key safes, smoke alarms, works to prevent slips and falls and small home improvements which can improve people’s quality of life.
