Our Home Modifications Process:
Depending on who you are funded by or whether you are self-funding the process varies slightly however the result will always be the same; a home environment that works for you and one that you can be proud of because you’ve designed it (with a little help).
The process begins with your referral. This may come directly from you or through someone acting on your behalf. It is important early in the process that we are sure your funding body (if you aren’t self-funding) has correctly identified home modifications as a need, and that an allowance has been made in terms of your available funds. To determine this, we will ask you for confirmation. This may come in the form of and NDIS Plan, a letter from a funding body, My Aged Care referral, etc.
The second step to this process is to book you in for an on-site meeting, this will give us the opportunity to see you and your home environment first-hand. Conducting a site meeting will help us understand what your goals are, what you are hoping for and to discuss the possible options that may assist you with meeting your goals. From there, if you decide you would like to proceed with
our service and major/complex home modifications, minor home modifications, we will create a project management report which we will base our quote from.
Once we have received your quote approval and it is clearly determined that everything is in place to start the process in full, we will provide you with a service agreement (a service agreement is a document that outlines an agreement between the provider, AlliedHealth Home Modifications and client). In addition to the fee for project management report and complex home modification and assessment. It is also very important the service agreement is signed before we proceed to the next stage.
The modification process commences. Generally, the occupational therapist is available throughout the process to assist and/or answer questions should they arise.

- Grab rails
- Ramps – these may be temporary, semi-permanent or permanent
