This is the minimum requirement needed for safety of a home and individual within it.
Harm Reduction Strategies are commonly utilized by family members, landlords, bylaw, social workers, healthcare workers, emergency services, landlords, and service technicians to allow safe access to the home.
Our experienced team knows how to be efficient and effective to make the best use of your funding and finances.
We do so by focusing on areas of the home most commonly used, routes of travel, and emergency exits.
This is the most costly method and least compassionate option for those suffering.
