Companion care might be an option (picture posed)

My mother is quite infirm and frail but of sound mind and stubborn! She absolutely will not hear of a nursing home, or even a carer, despite her GP recommending it. If she is to remain at home, is there any grant to help with making it safer for her?

She is on the old age pension with a small additional pension from my late father, but we have a little money to assist if necessary. We are worried about her falling especially at night, which could land her in hospital. What kind of modifications are best?
