Aids and Adaptations
We want all of our residents to enjoy the comfort of their own home and maintain as much independence as possible.
If you or a member of your family is finding it difficult to get into your home or move about freely inside we may be able to offer help.
You may have a disability or be recovering from a stay in hospital. If so, we may be able to fit aids and adaptations in your home which will let you remain independent.
It may be something fairly minor, such as a fitting a handrail, or it could be a major adaptation, like installing a through-floor lift.
In most cases, we will ask for confirmation of the adaptation needs from an occupational therapist. The Local Authority is able to provide assessments free of charge and if the work is agreed we will prioritise claims according to need and urgency.
If you think this service may benefit you, please contact us and speak to your Neighbourhood Services Officer to discuss your needs.
