What changes could you consider?

Home modifications may be included in your NDIS plan. As they can range from simple to complex, you may need an occupational therapist to help you decide what is best for your situation and ensure you get the most benefit.

Simple changes are usually inexpensive, quick and effective without any redesigning needed:

  • Non-slip mats
  • Grab rails
  • Handrails
  • Lever taps and door handles
  • Step wedges
  • Sensor lights
  • Doorway widening

Complex or specialised changes usually require professional support and may or may not require structural changes:

  • Ramp installation
  • Lowering kitchen benchtops
  • Movable cabinets
  • Bathroom modifications
