Home Modifications

What is Home Modifications in the NDIS?

Home modification are changes to the structure, layout or fittings to your home that are required to enable safe access and move around frequently used areas in their home. Home Modification becomes really important specially when your circumstances are changing.

How can Family Care Australia help you with Home Modifications?

At Family Care Australia we can help NDIS participants with Home Modification through a detailed consultation with the client. An expert will get in touch with you to make a plan with you on the modification that you require. The costs could be covered with your NDIS plan, which will be discussed through this consultation.

Some Common Home Modifications are:

  • Handheld Showers
  • Grab rails
  • Recreational – Dancing, arts & crafts, bowling etc.
  • Handrails
  • Threshold ramps
  • Level shower access

According to NDIS we can help you with Home Modifications if it is included in your plan. NDIS will add  home modifications in your plan if:

  • due to the impact of your disability, you or your carers cannot reasonably access and use frequently used rooms and spaces in your primary residence;
  • your primary residence, in its current condition, has significant and adverse impacts on the sustainability of current living and care arrangements; and
  • a suitably qualified Occupational Therapist has performed an assessment and recommended home modifications, considering all possible alternatives, including the use of equipment.
