Home Adaptations for people with a disability
If you have a disability that makes living in your property difficult, there is assistance you can receive from us to make your situation easier.
There is a range of adaptations that can be made, depending on your individual needs. Examples include:
- improving wheelchair access into and movement around your home
- disabled access to showers
- stair lifts
- kitchen adaptations
- smaller modifications such as grab rails
Small modifications such as grab rails can be done quickly. However, if you need something like a stair lift or a walk in shower, the waiting time could be much longer. We give priority to people with the greatest need in order to safeguard their health, safety, well-being or independence. Equipment (such as walking aids, grabbing sticks and other aids) will always be considered before adaptations to the home; and minor adaptations before major ones.
