CHANGING THE WAY WE WORK DURING THE PANDEMIC

Due to the current coronavirus situation we are having to change some of the ways we currently work.

 At present, until further notice, our Housing Support Officers will continue to support Occupational Therapy, Telecare and Social Work to install critical and urgent minor aids and adaptations, technology enabled care equipment and safety and security items in vulnerable clients homes.

 Our Care And Repair Officers, dealing with grant approvals work for major adaptations, will be working from home and will continue to assist and support clients by phone and online, but will not be carrying out any new home visits until further notice.

 Our Oban office staff will be working remotely until further notice but can still be contacted on 01631 567780 or on enquiries@abcarerepair.co.uk at any time 09.00 till 17.00, Mon to Fri.

 Care and Repair staff will be trying to support our health and social care partners and community efforts in any way we can throughout this developing situation. Please feel free to contact us to discuss anything you feel we may be able to assist you with.

In the meantime, stay safe and well,

 Steven Clarkson,
Manager
