We prescribe and source funding for home modifications for people with disabilities and their families.
How we can help
Home modifications can improve access to the home and increase independence for a person with a disability.
Examples of home modifications include:
- Installation of ramps and grab rails
- Installation of lever taps and hand held shower hoses
- Widening doorways
- Installation of celling hoists and tracking
- Levelling surfaces
- Installation of non-slip tiles
As part of service our qualified occupational therapists can complete an assessment for home modifications and determine if you are eligible for funding assistance. A major source of funding assistance is the WA State Government’s Community Aids and Equipment Program (CAEP). CAEP funds basic and essential equipment for mobility and essential activities within the home. If an item is not covered within the CAEP basic and essential guidelines, our therapists can apply directly to charitable organisations and grant providers as an alternative.
If you are eligible for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding our therapists can recommend suitable equipment to your NDIS / WA NDIS Coordinator.
Our service is flexible and tailored to the needs of each individual, their family and carers.
