Major adaptations usually involve a larger alteration to your home such as removing the bath and installing a level access shower. To complete this type of work, funding will be required through a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) which is means tested. The starting point in applying for a DFG is an assessment by an Occupational Therapist. This is arranged through Social Services and they will visit you at home to assess your needs and agree options.
We can help by acting on your behalf with the local authority and oversee the whole process from start to finish. We will work with the local authority with the aim of completing the adaptation within 9 months from when you first contact us.
Examples of large adaptations include; wet floor showers, extensions, stair lifts and access ramps.
