Care and Repair services offer personal, financial and technical support to people facing the difficult task of repairing, improving or adapting a home which is no longer suitable to the person's needs.
The provision of advice and information is a central part of Care and Repair's role, as well as providing practical assistance with grant applications and co-ordinating repairs. Care and Repair is a home-based and personalised service, which puts the client in control of decisions.
Staff visit people at home and assist them through the entire process of deciding what work is to be done, arranging finance and organising the building works.
Each case involves a different approach and often staff must cross disciplinary and departmental boundaries, working closely with health, housing and social work staff.
The building work is funded in a variety of ways, including local authority grants, benefits, equity release, home loans, and charitable funds.
Care and Repair Scotland is the national coordinating body and its annual conference presents the current issues around delivering a high quality services to older and disabled householders.
