If you need light bulbs or handrails fitting, contact Helping Hands Salford, who will do this sort of handyperson work at very little cost. If you rent from a social landlord, they should do this work for you.

If you are finding it difficult to get in and out of your chairs, here are some tips:
Sofas can be especially difficult - try putting a solid board under the cushions, sit on one side so that you have an armrest to help you or think about a sit to stand frame.
If you rent your home, ask your landlord to help with these jobs. If you own your home, you can get in touch with Helping Hands Salford.
