Age Action Care and Repair

Social Activities

Age Action’s Care and Repair does small DIY jobs, free of charge, for older people to help them maintain their homes and their independence.


Age Action’s Care and Repair prioritises carrying out jobs in the homes of older people who are being discharged or have recently been discharged from hospital. If someone is coming out of hospital, no matter where they live, they are supported to make sure their house is safe. Care and Repair can remove trip hazards, install handrails, replace toilet seats or move a bed downstairs to make sure the home is ready for their return. The Age Action Care and Repair programme is delivered in two ways around Ireland – by staff and volunteers, and by Community Partners around the country.
