Adapting your home
These are changes to your home that involve major work.
The Occupational Therapist (OT) will visit you at home and find out what your difficulties are. They will also assess if your home can be adapted to meet your needs and will make recommendations for works.
Major adaptations include:
- over bath showers
- walk in shower or wet room
- door widening
- wheelchair accessible kitchens
- hard standings - a hard material on the ground to park on (you can apply for disabled parking bays via Surrey County Council )
- ramps and steps
Depending on our budget, we may not be able to carry out all the recommendations. The OT may recommend that it would be better to move house to meet your long term needs.
