    Hello @angelawilby welcome to our community. Has the organisation who provided the sheltered housing not offered to help with any of this at all? I would really be telling them this needs to be done. Many Local Authorities will also have funds to help with this sort of things.

    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
