Accident Prevention Service

handyman, adapting your house,

What does it do?

Small practical electrical, plumbing or carpentry tasks that can make a home much safer in just an afternoon. The added reassurance of a safety alarm, front door peephole, carpets tacked down and rails on the stairs or bath help older people remain in their homes and prevent falls, accidents and unplanned hospital admissions.

The Accident Prevention Team can also move furniture and fit adaptations to make homes safer and easier to negotiate after leaving hospital.
