If you (or someone you know) is over 50 with sight or hearing loss or dementia then we may be able to help.

Our caseworker Pat Griffiths will visit you to talk through the practical problems you face in your home.

Everyone is different and every home is different, so how we can help will depend on your needs and circumstances.

Where we can’t help, we’ll find out who can and put you in touch with them.

We have been able to set up this service because of Wales wide funding from Welsh Government through Care & Repair Cymru. We are working with the support of RNIB Cymru and "Action on Hearing Loss".

It doesn’t matter if your home is privately owned or rented, what is important is that you will be safe, warm and independent.


Some examples of what we can do may include:

  • Advice on options to adapt or repair your home
  • Check what benefits you are entitled to
  • Help you reduce the risk of falls
  • Provide information about products that can help with sensory loss
  • Home safety check
  • Help you to access other support services
