Home Modifications

Support to make adjustments to your house

Making changes to your home environment can help you to live safety and independently at home. We offer two supports to help you achieve the perfect home environment for your needs.

If you are an NDIS participant and have been approved for the support category ‘home modifications’ in your NDIS plan, you can access the supports below. Please note that Ozcare can provide these supports to you if we also provide plan management services.

Supports


Assistive products for personal care and safety

Get access to specialised aids and equipment you need to be comfortable and safe, including:

  • Beds
  • Pressure mattresses
  • Toilet and bathroom equipment
  • Specialised clothing
  • Continence needs
  • Home modification design and construction

Our team of occupational therapists will visit your home to do a comprehensive assessment, provide you with a list of suggested changes, and work with you to have the changes completed.

This can include:

  • Adding rails to your bathroom
  • Installing ramps
  • Adding a slip resistant coating to your tile
  • Design changes such as removing rugs that are trip hazards
  • Other minor modifications to help you live independently at home

Support categories

Each support category contains a number of services that you can choose from to help achieve your goals. You can use your budget for any of services within that support category, but you are unable to use this budget for services within another support category. In some cases, you may be approved for a specific support (rather than a category). In this case, you will need to use your budget for this specific service only. Read more about NDIS plans.

Flexibility of services

With NDIS, you have the power to choose the services that best suit your needs and goals, including how services are delivered. Each of the services above can be tailored to your specific requirements, and changed as your needs change.

Why Ozcare?

With 20 years’ experience providing disability services, we focus on your strengths to support you to achieve your goals. To provide consistent personalised care, we make sure that you continue to see familiar faces for each of your appointments so you can get to know your carers and feel comfortable with them.

Cost of supports

The NDIA publishes a price list, which sets out the cost of each support. This is the price you will pay no matter which provider you choose. In some cases, a price for a support may not be fixed, and we can provide you with a quote that the NDIA will approve. Read more about NDIS costs.

Availability

Our NDIS services are open to all NDIS participants with an approved plan. We have branches all over Queensland, from the Gold Coast to Far North Queensland use our locate a service finder to find the nearest branch to you. Read more about NDIS eligibility.
