Preventative Adaptations for Older People (PAD)

What does it do?

The Preventative Adaptations (PAD) scheme offers a comprehensive range of minor adaptations to reduce the risk of falls and to increase
your safety in your home. It is a FREE service for people aged 60 or over living in the Nottingham City Council area. Many older people experience difficulties in their own home associated with ageing. If you are aged 60 or over, minor adaptations in the home can
frequently reduce the risk of falls and could improve your self-confidence to remain at home.

Who it is for?

People aged 60 or over living in the Nottingham City Council area.
  • you must be aged 60 or over
  • you must be permanently resident within the Nottingham City Council boundaries
  • you can be a Nottingham City Homes tenant, a homeowner or be in private rented accommodation.  If you are in private rented accommodation we will need permission from your landlord before some of the adaptations can be done.
  • the scheme is designed to increase safety in your home, reduce falls and facilitate timely discharge from hospital
  • all minor adaptations under the scheme are free
