Help in the home for over 65s


The Council offers a service for people over 65 living in the Broadland district called the Handyperson+ Service. The handyperson can carry out a range of small household repairs and minor adaptations. This could be anything from fixing door handles or a leaky tap to putting up shelving. All work is carried out by a fully trained and insured handyperson.

The handyperson can also provide information about things like community activities, home help and companionship services, advocacy, benefit claims, health and legal services or financial management.

The service is specifically aimed at older people with long-term health conditions including those diagnosed with dementia.
