Housing Adaptations

Housing adaptations may be necessary following an injury or due to the natural aging process to assist in maintaining safety and independence or to allow a person to be safely cared for at home.

Occupational Therapists assist with advising on what adaptations best suit the client and their family.

Grants are available from your local authority to financially assist with housing adaptations, such as the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability and the Mobility Aids Grant. We provide the required occupational therapy reports for these grants.

Please note that this service is only available in Cork City and County.

Occupational Therapists assess the need of the client and their family or carers and make suitable recommendations in keeping with current national guidelines. Housing adaptation grants are available from relevant city and county councils which require an Occupational Therapists Report. Please contact your local authority to enquire if you are eligible for the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability or the Mobility Aids Grant.
Housing adaptations can include the following:
  • Provision for wheelchair access
  • Installation of ceiling mounted hoists
  • The removal of a bath and the installation of a level access shower
  • The installation of a stairlift
  • Extensions to include a bedroom and accessible bathroom.
  • The provision of wheelchair access throughout a home
  • Widening of doors
  • Kitchen modifications
  • New builds

Expert Witness Services

We provide plaintiff and defence expert witness reports to include the assessment and recommendations.
