Your home environment can influence how well you can perform everyday activities such as having a shower, using the toilet, preparing a meal or simply entering or leaving your home.
We understand that changing your home is a big decision and you should be involved in the process every step of the way.
Home modifications are changes to the structure, layout or fittings in your home to enable you to access and move around your home as a result of a disability. This can be simple and low cost such as a grab rail next to the front step for you to get into the home safely, or a modification to the bathroom which requires a bath to be removed and level shower base installed.
We have a team of experienced occupational therapists who can meet with you to understand your goals and how your home environment is influencing your independence and safety. The therapist will assess you doing activities in your home and work with you to come up with different options. We understand what information different funders need in order to make a decision about paying for home modification. We work closely with project managers and builders to get a great outcome for you.
Finally, we always come back when the home modifications are complete to get your feedback about whether the modifications have assisted you to achieve your goals. If there are further changes that need to be made we can make sure that the process does not stop until you are satisfied.
