Are you aged over 55 and finding your present accommodation difficult to manage?
Would you like to enjoy the benefits of independent living knowing that help is on hand from an Independent Living Advisor if needed?
Current Havebury tenants or home-owners who fit the criteria are invited to apply. If you are under retirement age you will need to have a support need and be over 55 to fit the criteria. If you live in a Havebury home at the moment and wish to downsize, you may also be eligible for a grant towards moving costs.

If you fit the criteria, We can assist in your garden with grass and hedge cutting and decorating within your home.
Funding for the scheme is limited, so it is only available to you if you are a Havebury tenant over 65 or have a disability and have no-one to help you manage.
Decorating is restricted to the painting of one room each year.

Housing adaptations can include a range of measures which assist people to lead more fulfilling lives. Stair riders, grab rails and ramps are typically the kind of aids that can be provided, helping people stay in their homes and play an active part in the community.
There are two types of adaptations that are carried out: minor and major.
Minor adaptations are those that can be dealt with directly by Havebury without the need to involve an assessment from an occupational therapist. Examples are the fitting of grab rails, lever taps and additional stair rails.
Major adaptations include level access showers and stair riders. This type of adaptation will require an assessment from an occupational therapist.
What to do
You can make your request to the Customer First occupational therapist. This can be done by calling 0808 800 4005 or you can contact Havebury on 0300 3300 900.
