At Care & Repair in Powys we provide advice and practical support to older people or people with a disability across Powys who need to adapt or maintain their home.

For the last 30 years our aim has been to help people to remain living independently in safe, warm, accessible homes.

We also offer free advice on a wide range of issues and in this first of a series of articles we ask:




Are you on the Priority Services Register?

Did you know that if you are an older person and/or rely on electricity for medical reasons such as using a ventilator, or dialysis pump or have a stair lift, hoist, electric bed or Careline, you can sign up to the Priority Services Register which is managed by your electricity provider.

This means that in the event of a power cut you can have your electricity supply restored more quickly and be kept informed during an unplanned power cut. You would also be told about planned interruptions to your electricity supply.

If you are eligible for this free service and would like to sign up or you are not sure whether you are on the register, call Care & Repair in Powys on 01686 620760 who will be able to help you.
