Improving your health

published: September 4th 2014

Sue is retired and lives alone. Already suffering from high blood pressure and chronic fatigue, she was increasingly distressed by the state of her home.

Problems with the property included drainage that continually flooded the downstairs, the presence of asbestos and a hazardous kitchen and bathroom.

How we helped

London Rebuilding Society insulated the loft; installed thermal insulation boards, a self-condensing boiler and new central heating system; put in a new bathroom with a walk-in, sit-down shower; and replaced the kitchen.

Sue is now healthier and happier in her refurbished home.
