What people say about Care and Repair

Our clients and our volunteers

“This is a wonderful service for older people, long may it continue. Looking at the jobs can really get someone down and people like Age Action make such a difference to the lives of me and my husband."

- Anne, Dun Laoghaire

“I’m writing to thank Paul and the other volunteer who called to put up a shelf for me. The service you provide is really great. I don’t know where I would be without it."

- Michael, Salthill, Galway

“I was fortunate to have your volunteers call to fix my front room light. Thank you and your good people for such a great help when it was needed.”

- Miriam, Carrigaline, Cork

“Small things can sometimes cause a lot of annoyance. Care and Repair are so very useful. They are the best thing to happen in our area - everyone is happy with the service. They provide a reliable service that offers immediate help, which is much appreciated."

- Bernard, Ballincollig, Cork

“Hard to get people to do jobs - especially someone you trust. The person that comes out from Care and Repair is friendly and easy to talk to - they are someone I can depend and they always phone back.”

- Jimmy, Ballyfermot

“I phoned you for some Builders and you gave me two names, well I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Paul and his crew and the contractors he employed were some of the nicest and thorough tradesmen I have ever dealt with. I now have a new Kitchen, Bathroom, Windows, Rewired, new floors throughout the whole house and the Icing on the cake - Insulation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul."

- Assumpta, Tallaght

“The reaction we get from the people makes a big difference as they are so delighted to see someone coming. It is amazing that our help makes a massive impact.” 

- Hugh, Care & Repair Volunteer
