Ballinasloe Care & Repair in conjunction with Ballinasloe Social Services was set up in April, 2010. It is part of Age Action Ireland, a national organisation which carries out "odd jobs" for older people and provides a befriending service, which enables them to live independently in their own homes and communities 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
- Trades Referral Service
- Quote Check Service
- Working with other local voluntary groups in establishing a Care & Repair Service
The Repair Service uses a pool of volunteers and handypersons to carry out small repairs and to complete minor home tasks for older people. Volunteers in effect provide a willing pair of helping hands to do a variety of small tasks that an older person may find difficult to do.
