The Care & Repair Programme provides DIY jobs to older people free of charge to help them maintain their homes and independence. During COVID, we piloted our idea to make this service available to people who have recently been discharged from hospital or will be discharged from hospital soon, to ensure they can return to a safe and comfortable home.
We are delighted to announce that the Care and Repair service is now able to travel ANYWHERE in Ireland to support older people who are or who have recently been discharged from hospital!!

If you know anyone who could benefit from Age Action’s DIY support, please get in touch to see about opportunities for us to help. And, if you are a medical professional or know a medical professional who is looking for support to help discharge patients to a safe home, call us and ask about our Care and Repair service!
