Home Modifications

Home modifications are changes to adapt a living space to increase accessibility, independence and safety. Many people pay for home modifications on their own. Some people may qualify for low-interest loans or financial assistance depending on their income.

Common home modifications include:

  • Grab bars near the toilet or in the shower.
  • Exterior ramps.
  • Widening doorways.
  • Lowering cabinets.

Environmental assessments can be conducted by a licensed occupational therapist to make recommendations for modifications to meet individualized needs.
