"BISHOP CREIGHTON HOUSE CARE AND REPAIR" PROGRAM
"We can visit you in your home to discuss your needs and answer any queries you have. In consultation with you and an Occupational Therapist where necessary, we can draw up specifications and plans as appropriate and arrange quotations from our list of approved contractors. Once the work is underway we deal with any issues as they arise and make sure everything is completed properly before we pay the contractor."
