Adapting Your Home
Who can we help?
We endeavour to help any Tai Tarian tenant who:
- has a long term disability
- has difficulty accessing different parts of their home and/or essential facilities (like the kitchen, bathroom, living room or toilet)
How can we help?
You need to contact the Works of Adaptation Team on 01639 508477 who will be able to make arrangements for one of our Trusted Assessors to visit you in your home. The Trusted Assessor will assess all requests and will then further advise the tenant of the process.
The team look to install equipment and adaptations which may help you to access your home and carry out day to day activities.
Who should you get in touch with?
Your first step is to arrange a visit from either our Works of Adaptation Team on 01639 508477 or an Occupational Therapist (either via the Local Authority or an Independent Service), they will assess you and provide a recommendation outlining your adaptation needs.
You then need to pass the recommendation to us for our consideration.
The type of adaptations that we look to provide are:
- external/staircase lighting
- bath/shower alterations
- level door thresholds
- heating controls
- white and yellow edges to steps
- grab rails
- lever taps
- sensory aids
Each case is considered on its own merit and is subject to approval and availability of funding.
Please note: Larger adaptations such as extensions should be referred to the Local Authority which is responsible for funding that type of work.
