How can you adapt my home to support independent living?

We know that more of you need your homes adapted to help you stay independent at home and to support your health and wellbeing.

We have an in-house Occupational Therapist who can assess tenants medical needs and recommend the adaptations needed in homes.

There are two types of adaptation work we can carry out

May include:

  • grab bars
  • lever taps
  • additional stair rails
  • handrails
  • lowered light switches
  • raised electric sockets
  • specialist smoke alarms

Major work (requires planning permission)

May include:

  • stair lifts
  • over bath showers
  • replacing baths with showers
  • ramps
  • vehicle hard standings
  • widened doors
  • ceiling tracks
  • mobility standard kitchens
  • extra WC/wash facilities and pods
  • adapted homes
