The Welsh Government has announced a £6 million investment to help older people in Wales live independently in their own home.
It says the funding supports the work of the Care and Repair service. It provides adaptations like ramps, handrails, and safety alarms, to enable older people to live safely in their own homes.
£2 million of the funding is for the Rapid Response Adaptations Programme, which provides minor adaptations to help prevent many people from having to be admitted to hospital.
The Welsh Government says estimates show every pound invested in the programme creates a £7.50 saving for health and social services.
