Our aim is to assist people with being able to remain living at home independently and safely, with confidence and dignity. The Care and Repair team offers free, confidential, independent advice to clients, assisting them to carry out disabled adaptations to their homes. This not only benefits the client, but it helps sustain communities and can assist in the reduction of hospital / care home admissions. We are a team of friendly, dedicated staff who are passionate about delivering good outcomes for our clients.
The typical types of work we carry out are wet floor / level access showers, ramps, hoists, curved stairlifts, through the floor stair lifts and external step lifts.
We support older people over the age of 60 and disabled people of any age, who are home owners or tenants of private landlords throughout Dumfries and Galloway. We aim to provide information, advice and support on the financial assistance available to support major adaptations working to meet all the statutory requirements for this.
If you think you, or someone you know, would benefit from any of the above adaptations then you should contact the Occupational Therapy Department on 0303 333 3001 and they will arrange to come to your home to carry out as assessment. If you meet their criteria they will refer you to Care and Repair.
