Getting in and around your home, home security and safety.
In order to get the best out of your home, you need to be able to move around it easily and safely, and you need to be able to get in and out of it too whenever you choose.
Many of our clients are referred to us by the NHS or council for handrails and/or other support following a stay in hospital.
This can often be a good time to look at other aspects of your home with an eye to your future independence and safety. We can help you make the changes you need to stay in your home if you choose. We will listen to you, assess your needs and tailor our services to meet your requirements.
It may be possible that some smaller aids will help you move about your home more easily.
These might include:
additional stair and grab rails, widening doors, or a bed rail to help make getting out of bed easier
fitting a key safe to ensure that someone you trust can always get in should you need assistance
improving your locks to ensure you feel safe and secure in your home
Some equipment is available free of charge but we can also advise on other daily living aids to buy.
Should you prefer or need a bigger change you may be entitled to a Disabled Facilities Grant, and we can advise you on this, but if not, we can still help you with the process of making the changes you want to help you stay independent at home.
Take a look at our bathroom brochure for example, to give you an idea of what is possible.
If you like what you see, we can help and take the worry out of the process.
Our experienced technical staff will visit free of charge to discuss your needs and the changes required. If you decide to go further, we will charge a fee full details available on request.
