Aids and adaptations
If you have problems getting around your home, we may be able to make some adaptations which would make it easier for you. For example, you may need an extra handrail to help you up the stairs or a level access shower as you can no longer climb into a bath. As long as the layout of your home allows us to make some changes we will do so.
For small alterations, such as installing an extra handrail, we will do the work free of charge. We will also arrange an appointment to see an occupational therapist, so we can make sure the work we do is suitable for your specific mobility needs. For more costly improvements you may be eligible for a Disabilities Facilities Grant, which in most boroughs we will help you apply for.
If you think you may need some adaptations in your home to help improve your quality of life or you need more information, please contact our Service Centre.
