Home adaptations

Adaptations are changes to your home that help you and your family live independently with privacy, confidence and dignity.

Options Appraisal

Occupational Therapy staff will lead on the specialist assessment in all requests for adaptations to a client’s current home and applications to housing for adapted housing solutions.

Where the Occupational Therapy assessment demonstrates that the client’s accommodation cannot be adapted or requires numerous major or complex adaptations, they will liaise with Housing staff to explore the availability of suitable alternative housing options.

Occupational Therapy and Housing staff will consider the assessed risk and desired outcomes and agree a joint recommendation to meet the client’s needs.
