About

Age Action is a charity which promotes positive ageing and better policies and services for older people. Working with, and on behalf of, older people we aim to make Ireland the best place in the world in which to grow older. Care & Repair Programme was established to carry out 'odd jobs' for older people and to provide a befriending service. The programme is currently based in Dublin and Galway, and on a franchise basis in other locations around the country. Care & Repair is funded by Irish Life Plc. The main aim of the Programme is to assist older people to carry out necessary small repairs and improvements to their homes, enabling them to live independently in the community in increased comfort and safety. In order to meet the needs of older people, Care and Repair provides a range of practical repair and care services including: * Small repairs service * Home Visiting/Befriending Service * Daily Contact Service * Trades Referral Service * Quote Check Service * Working with other local voluntary groups in establishing a Care & Repair Service
