Age Concern Warwickshire - Care and Repair

Care and Repair is a Home Improvement Agency offering practical help and support to people over the age of 60 and those with physical disabilities of any age.  The prime object is to ensure that clients are able to continue living in their own homes in greater comfort and security.  The service is for homeowners and people in privately rented accommodation.

Care and Repair has compiled a list of local contractors who have been vetted and approved, many of whom have worked with the organisation for many years.

Clients who wish to deal independently with their works or adaptation can be given the names of two contractors from the approved list.  Many clients however opt to engage the support of a caseworker who for a specified fee will project manage the works of improvement drawing from the services of the Technical Officer as required.  Both major and minor work and adaptations are undertaken and overseen from start to completion by the Care & Repair Team.

Care and Repair staff can also refer clients to Benefit Agencies to ensure that they are in receipt of appropriate benefits.  This can have a marked effect on their income and hence on their quality of life.
