Talk to us

We set up Yorkshire Independent Living with a single aim: to create stylish solutions to help you be more independent at home.

Just because you have a disability or you’re not as young as you used to be, doesn’t mean you should compromise on good design. Your house should feel like a home, not a hospital.

Bathrooms should be beautiful. Kitchens should be elegant. Ramps and grab rails may be necessary, but they don’t have to be ugly. Life can change, but that doesn’t mean you need to give up the home you love.

If you need to redesign your house to meet your needs but still want it to feel like your home, get in touch with us today.

Working With Us

If you’re interested in working with us, there are a few things you need to know:

  • You won’t get any high-pressure sales tactics. We’ll give you a detailed quote for the project and leave you to decide whether you’d like to go ahead.
  • We’ll work with you to agree on the best independent living solution for your home. In most cases, we’ll visit your home to carry out a survey and talk to you about what you want and your budget.
  • That goes for design too. Got your heart set on a particular colour scheme or want the latest trend? It’s your home and your choice.
  • We’ll tell you straight out if what you want isn’t possible. We can’t work miracles, though we’re pretty good at coming up with creative solutions.

We’re a company grounded in God’s Own County. We say it how it is, don’t make false promises and are firm believers in the healing power of a strong cup of Yorkshire Tea. If that sounds like someone you want to work with, then give us a call.

Our Story

Donald O’Hara set up his building and property maintenance services company over thirty years ago. When a close family member became disabled, he realised his team’s skills could be used not just to fix problems, but to create solutions.

That’s when he set up Yorkshire Independent Living; a building services company dedicated to helping people live independently at home. He  has designed thousands of home adaptations for people from 2 to 104 years old. He takes pride in giving customers their dignity and quality of life back and making life easier for those who provide care.

With Donald’s experienced team and their specialist knowledge, Yorkshire Independent Living aims to be the leading provider of home adaptation services in West Yorkshire.
