Disabled persons have to face a lot of challenges that are beyond their imagination. No wonder these difficulties create hurdles for them to live life independently. If your parents or any elderly persons at home are living with disabilities, the best thing you can do is develop their quality of life with tailored NDIS home modifications. It allows them easier and safer access within the home.
Let us tell you how the overall NDIS modifications in homes improve the lifestyle of the people needing disability support.
NDIS Home Modifications to Develop the Quality of Life for Disabled Persons
Registered NDIS providers can make the existing home more accessible for people with disabilities so they can use the areas safely and comfortably. NDIS home modifications enhance the safety and independence of such persons in their homes. It helps them do daily chores by increasing mobility support while eliminating dependence on others. In short, they can live a normal life without asking for help from a caregiver 24/7. Furthermore, you can cut the health costs of hospital admissions for full-time care.
Now, the home modifications are of two categories- Complex and minor based on specific needs that NDIS home builders make for more convenient disabled access.
Complex Home Modifications
Complicated modifications include structural changes in multiple areas, making them more expensive. The changes don’t include only lifts and hoists but other things. For example:
Bathroom modifications, like lowering or raising sinks and benches for easier access
Creating circulation spaces and threshold spaces
Customising and reconfiguring the wardrobes and cupboards
Reinforcing high-usage items and support areas
Kitchen modifications for disabled or wheelchair users
Non-slip surface applications
Minor Home Modifications
Minor modifications bring some amazing changes for more easily accessible for persons with disabilities but without affecting the structural layout, which means non-structural additions. Yet, such projects are fitted into low-cost budgets for the following small modifications:
- Installing hand and grab rails
- Relocating switches, railing and wheelchair ramps for homes
- Widening doorways
- Stepless shower base
- Electric device and emergency alarm installations
However, make sure you choose a registered NDIS home builder having experience working with qualified occupational therapists to ensure the effectiveness of such home modifications.
Signs Your Home Needs NDIS Modifications
Suppose you have an elderly person or parents with some disability at home. But, whether you are unsure if it’s the right time for home modification, look out for these indications:
- They are facing mobility problems within homes, leading to safety concerns.
- Dealing with problems regarding personal care, such as while using the shower
- Needing safety support to reach their goals, like a hoist or shower chair in the bathroom, which means your shower room requires modification to access more space
