John Ford Group – the company:

The John Ford Group specialises in the adaptation of houses to make living at home easier for the frail, elderly and those with disabilities – whether it’s a simple alteration or a large-scale complex building conversion, a rapid response self-contained interior pod or an entire garden annexe. Our team react quickly to all enquiries and ‘home from hospital’ referrals, and our specialist fitters work speedily but safely, with minimal disruption to your home and within budget. And always with quality in mind.

All large-scale house extensions, conversions and equipment installations are usually instructed by specialist architects or solicitors and coordinated by our professional construction managers. And we have been vetted and approved by Trading Standards and are regulated by the Chartered Institute of Building so you can buy with confidence. We leave the general building to others, choosing instead to focus on adapting homes, and to that end, we employ a workforce of managers, skilled tradesmen and fitters working across East Anglia as we aim to be the first-choice provider of specialist home adaptations and equipment installations.

Our ethos is based on transparency, honesty and trust and we work with occupational therapists (OTs) to ensure all adaptations are made for the greatest benefit and that no change is made unnecessarily. That is why we are often referred by occupational therapists, case managers, care companies, solicitors and other allied care industry professionals.

But most of our referrals come from recommendations by our customers, for which we are immensely thankful.

By far the most common adaptation involves replacing a bath with a level-access shower to facilitate washing. However many other adaptations can improve access around the home, making daily living easier for all.

The addition of our Rapid Response service means that we can get you home from the hospital as soon as possible and at the same time help the NHS by freeing up a vital bed for someone else.
