Home Safety

Steps to Safety with Manchester Care & Repair
Our Home Safety Assessor will make an appointment to visit you at home (we always strive to fit in with our clients’ arrangements) to carry out a home safety check and may recommend the installation of the following safety measures to prevent falls:

  • Additional stair banister/ hand rails
  • Grab rails for both inside your home (by your bath or shower) and outside your home (by your front or back door)
  • Non-slip bathmats and shower mats
  • Carpet trims
  • The securing of flexes and cables
  • Power-down plugs (Supplied free of charge)

All of the above equipment is supplied at cost to any Manchester resident aged sixty or over (there is no labour charge). You do not have to have a disability or be on a means-tested benefit to request safety equipment from Manchester Care & Repair, our aim is to reduce falls and trips in older people whatever their income!

We are also able to offer you information and advice about home security, fire safety and energy efficiency.
