Sometimes a few relatively simple modifications can make your home a much easier place in which to live. Our friendly and approachable staff are happy to help you maintain a safe and comfortable home environment.
We use the most cost effective materials available, and all our work must contribute to your health and safety.
Here are some of the areas where we can provide practical help:
- In the bathroom: full bathroom modifications, installing grab rails, shower curtain rods and hand-held showers, removing shower screens.
- Around the house: installing grab rails, wedge ramps, lever taps and chair raisers, replacing washers, widening doorways for wheelchairs and walkers, replacing light bulbs, securing rugs and cords.
- Outside the house: installing handrails, safety lights and access ramps, small plumbing jobs.
- Any other repairs or modifications that will help ensure your safety.
The Home Modification and Maintenance service is for frail aged, older people, people with disabilities and their carers who are living in their own home, or in certain circumstances, are privately renting.
A quote will be provided for your consideration and approval, prior to work commencing. All costs can be discussed with the Program Coordinator at any time. The service takes into account the financial situation of each client. HMMS is jointly funded by the NSW and Commonwealth Government.
