Sometimes doing the everyday tasks can get more challenging. There might be small repairs or minor adaptations that we can do to help you to live independently. This might include some hand rails or grab rails which we can install for you. Other minor repairs and adaptations include:

  • Door entry intercom
  • Small ramps
  • External rails
  • Access to toilet facilities
  • Steps
  • Lever taps
  • Key safes
  • Widening paths
  • Moving light switches/sockets
  • Putting in half steps
  • Window opening equipment
  • Bathing equipment
  • Additional lighting
  • Stair rails
  • Telecare

If you feel that maybe you could benefit from some of these, you can request an Occupational Therapist assessment. They will come out and visit you in your home and help advise which adaptations will best suit your needs. If you are eligible, they will then place an order through DAHS and someone will come and put it in place for you within 3 weeks.
(But often much sooner!)

You can also visit one of our mi-life centres and one the helpful staff can help assess your needs, show you the different options and arrange for the work to be completed at a time which suits you.
