We can also support you to explore and arrange home modifications that will support and enable you to continue living at home. These could be minor alterations to your home and living environment, like adding hand or grab rails, to support you to stay living at home safely. Or they could be larger changes, like upgrading and changing your bathroom or changing the entry points to your house.
Depending on what type of home modifications you need, and the funds that you have available, you may be able to pay for these through your Home Care Package. You can also explore the costs of home modification through a private agreement.
Home Maintenance, gardening and lawn services, and home modifications are available in all of our Community Care locations across New South Wales and southern Queensland.
Yes, if your home has a lawn that requires mowing to ensure you can stay living at home safely, we can organise this for you. We have preferred and trusted partners who work with us on specialist services like lawn mowing and gardening, or we can work with you if you have a long-time connection with a company that you want to keep using and pay for through your Home Care Package.
We’ll work with you and our garden-expert partners to ensure things are maintained the way you like them! This might mean looking at ways in which you can be involved, like helping shop for or choose plants, or ensuring you can chat with the gardener to let them know how you like things.
