The Care & Repair Programme

The Care & Repair Programme was established nationally by Age Action to carry out minor repairs for older and vulnerable people free of charge, to give them access to reliable tradesmen for larger jobs and to provide a befriending service.

The Care & Repair Programme is delivered by OLOL staff and volunteers in the Limerick area. 

The vision of the programme is to enable older and vulnerable people to remain in their own homes, in their own communities, living as independently as possible, through the improvement of their housing conditions and their level of comfort, security, and well-being.

 

The Care and Repair Programme consists of three key services:
 

  1. The Repair Service uses a pool of volunteers and handypersons to carry out small repairs and to complete minor home tasks for older people. The most common services required by older people are: Minor painting (e.g. front door, garden gate), changing plugs, fuses and light bulbs, hanging curtains, installing security locks and chains, installing domestic smoke alarms. All requests for small jobs are considered.

 

  1. The Care Service is a home visiting or befriending service using volunteers to provide regular social contact to older people who are at risk of isolation in their own homes.

 

  1. The Daily Contact Service is a daily phone call made to the client at a pre-arranged time by a volunteer. In OLOL this is carried out by our Good Morning project. The purpose of the call is to make sure that the client is in good spirits and not in need of urgent support (especially medical attention).
