    What is an adaptation?

    An adaptation is a physical alteration to your home to allow you to live as independently as possible. These can be either minor or major adaptations.

    Minor adaptations include:

    • grab rails; and
    • a half step.

    Major adaptations include:

    • a level access / walk-in shower;
    • a stair lift;
    • an outside ramp;
    • a through floor lift;
    • widening doorways; and
    • a ceiling track hoist.

    To determine if you would benefit from an adaptation, an Occupational Therapist or Equipment and Adaptations Officer will look at whether adaptations to your property will help you.
