Aids and adaptations
We want older or disabled residents to live independently in their homes for as long as possible.
Do you find it difficult to do any of the following?
- Get in and out of your home?
- Use the kitchen or bathroom?
- Use taps, heating controls, window latches and door handles?
Our home adaptations service
Aids and adaptations in your home can help you be more independent. Often simple changes can make a big difference. We can fit grab rails, stair rails, flashing doorbells, lever taps, safety glass and dropped kerbs. We can also do minor alterations to bathrooms and kitchens.
If your home needs more major work we can help you get an assessment from an Occupational Therapist and help you contact Bristol City Council to see if you would be eligible for a Disabled Facilities Grant.
Who can use the service?
You can use the service if either you, or someone in your household, has a long term illness, a disability or is an older resident.
