If you or someone in your family has care needs, there might be adjustments that could be made to your home to make life easier. We have care and disability grants that can be used for home adaptions and for equipment and technology. Even if there doesn’t seem to be a piece of equipment you can buy off the shelf, we have a partnership with Remap who can adapt an off the shelf product or invent something entirely unique just for you.
A socially inclusive lifestyle
And if you’re a carer we want to support you too. We know that carers shoulder a huge responsibility. If you’re looking after someone else every day, there are times when you need to rest. We can pay for you to have some time away – for a social activity you love or just to take it easy and recover. Our care and disability grants can pay for another carer to come in while you’re away or for the person you’re looking after to stay in a care home until you’re back. And if you’re the person with care needs, we can help fund activities you enjoy so you don’t miss out on the socially inclusive lifestyle that’s so important for physical and mental wellbeing.
Care needs can be challenging, but they shouldn’t feel unmanageable, and at Foothold we can help you make sure they don’t. If that’s the situation you’re in and if you or your partner is an engineer and you have less than £50,000 in savings, get in touch.
