Service Details

Description

Environmental accessibility adaptations are physical adaptations to a person's home. These home accessibility modifications can make a home safer and help people function with greater independence.


Additional Information

The Home Accessibility Program ensures that people with disabilities have the home modifications they need for safe access and increased independence in their homes.
Common modifications include ramps, grab bars, roll-in showers, widened doorways and handrails.


The service provides:
* Recommendations for renovations, modifications, or devices that increase accessibility and safety in new or existing homes
* On site survey of home and/or property
* Home modification planning
* Report of findings and recommendations for improving access and safety
* Information and referral to potential funding sources, loan programs


The temporary ramp program allows people with a disability to move back to, or to continue living independently in their homes by improving access and safety. The temporary ramps are modular. The Center assists consumers to locate funding resources and insures that ramps are constructed in a safe and cost effective manner.
