Pen­sioner grants

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

Ori­huela coun­cil has launched a €300,000 grant scheme to help se­nior cit­i­zens adapt their homes to their mo­bil­ity needs.

The grants are avail­able to res­i­dents aged over 60 who are on the mu­nic­i­pal reg­is­ter (padrón) and re­ceive any kind of pen­sion.

The money can be used to re­place baths with show­ers, stairs with ramps, make door frames wider, and in­stall handrails, balustrades, non-slip tiles and floor­ing. They can also be spent on pre­scrip­tion glasses, hear­ing-aids, den­tal im­plants, spe­cific beds, house­hold gad­gets or equip­ment to make their life eas­ier and safer. Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion is avail­able from the town hall.
