Independent living in the Greater Geelong, Surf Coast, Otways and Colac regions is becoming increasingly important to a lot more people, not only due to injury or illness, we are now seeing a rise in the ageing population. It’s only natural that people want to continue living in their homes for as long as they can and there are many options for you to consider and this is where we can help.
Accessibility features such as ramps, platform steps and lifts along with grab rails and handrails provide confidence to the person living independently in their home and peace of mind to the people that care for them.
Whether it be a basic grab rail installed to the shower, a bidet toilet, widened doorways, level entry showers, a timber ramp or more complex home modifications there are loads of options to explore. Have a look around your home, or the home of someone you care for. Can you pinpoint an area that could be improved to provide easier access for them?
Depending on your circumstances, funding may be available to you through the NDIS, Home Care Package, DVA & Worksafe.
I have spoken to quite a few clients that have told me what a difference it has made, not only to the person that the accessibility features were installed for, but also their families. I encourage you to have the conversation and explore the options out there that will help you or the people you care for, feel more comfortable in the home.
