Aids and adaptations
Aids and adaptations are physical alterations to your property. There are two types of adaptations which can be arranged for your property:
Minor adaptations – We can help with the smaller things like stair rails, grab rails, lever taps and key safes. If you think a minor adaptation is right for you please contact us and we will arrange an appointment to assess your circumstances within 10 days.
Major adaptations – In some instances major adaptations may be required, for example fitting a walk-in shower or stair lift. Major adaptations usually involve making changes to the structure of your home. We will need to visit and assess your home to make sure that this work is possible. In some circumstances, it may be possible to meet your needs in other ways. For example, by arranging a transfer to a more suitable home. We will discuss this with you if we think your current home isn’t right for you.
If you, or someone you live with, find it difficult to get around your home, you can request a visit by an Occupational Therapist. They will help decide what alterations would be suitable for your needs.
Occupational Therapists can be assigned to you through your local authority. Please choose from the list below to find out more:
