Items supplied

Banister rails – A second banister rail to make it easier to ascend and descend the stairs. (Only by recommendation of the Occupational Therapist unless the client wishes to pay for the materials in which case they can go through the small repairs service)


Key Safes – Useful if you have a lot of service providers coming into your home and aren’t always able to let them in.  This is a code operated safe which stores a spare key for your home.  The code for the safe is only given to those who will need to access your home and do not have their own key. (Only by recommendation of the Occupational Therapist).


Lowered thresholds – To eliminate hazards of tripping on a threshold.  Especially useful for those who need to use a wheelchair or walking frame. (Only by recommendation of the Occupational Therapist).


Grab rails – Internal or external rails can be supplied and fitted either by the recommendation of the Occupational Therapist or, if the client is happy to indicate where the rail should go, a request can be made direct to Care and Repair without an Occupational Therapist assessment.
