Care & Repair in South Lanarkshire work with older people and those with disabilities, helping them live independently
At Care & Repair we aim to to help you Repair, Improve or Adapt your home to allow you to remain safe, secure and independent in your own home and in your own community.
Help when you need it. Comfort and security at all times.
Care & Repair South Lanarkshire offers a wide range of practical services and advice that allow elderly and disabled people in our community live independently. With the additional help we offer people can enjoy living with more comfort and security in their own homes. Working with your Occupational Therapist we’ll help to repair and adapt your home to meet your needs. We’ll give you all of the help and advice you need to stay happy and safe at home.
You are able to use the Care and Repair Service if you or someone who lives with you is a home owner or are a tenant of a private landlord 65 or older or is living with a long-term health problem or illness.
Your Care & Repair Service is always here to help, even during this new way of life. We are taking calls and taking action, for people with various home repairs or maintenance needs.
Most recently an electrical fault meant an elderly lady had no lights or cooker until we arranged for an electrician to carry out some work, and a flood from upstairs had a disabled couple in a soggy situation while it leaked through their ceiling light fittings.
From a broken window to a leak from above, we know these household problems are still at the top of your list, so please call us if you need any help for a repair and we can arrange for one Officer to consider the best way forward with you.

Small Repairs Service Survey
At Care and Repair in South Lanarkshire we are asked on a daily basis for assistance with small jobs that people need help with.
These jobs are generally too small for a Tradesperson to be interested in working on but are needed to enable people to continue to live comfortably in their own home.
We would like to start a Small Repairs Service that would address this need and would like to seek your views on this project. This Service would provide practical help with odd jobs and small repairs around the home, which you might find difficult if you are older or have a disability.
