Home Adaptations

We provide a wide range of disability and elderly-friendly adaptations throughout Braintree and the surrounding areas

Many of us take our homes for granted until our circumstance change, in many properties, bathrooms, kitchens and general access are not designed with disabled access in mind. At Village Property Maintenance we undertake every type of project relating to improving access in the home. Our primary aim is to make life easier for people who need it most.

At some time in our lives, perhaps because of disability or just getting older, many of us will find it more difficult to carry out everyday tasks and remain independent. This could be anything from struggling to climb into the bath to finding it difficult to get up steps or climb the stairs.
At Village Property Maintenance we work hard to provide the services that many elderly and disabled need to remain independent, If you require any assistance we would be delighted to be of assistance.
