What kinds of services are covered under home modifications?

Adapt Ability staff are able to perform simple modifications, such as installing grab bars, or do more complex jobs such as ramp and lift installation. Remodeling of an existing space or the design of an addition, as well as whole house design, are also a part of Adapt-Ability's services.

Our most frequent requests are for ramps and bathroom equipment. Emergency call systems are also popular items.

Who is typically referred and who refers them?

We serve people with many different types of physical and sensory disabilities; we serve all disabilities and ages. People often refer themselves or are referred by others working with them, such as counselors, case managers, therapists, and family membe rs.

What happens when a person is referred to Adapt-Ability?

A rehabilitation technologist is assigned to the person. The case is put before a team review and according to the person's needs, other team members may become involved such as therapists. The person and his/her environment is then assessed and a plan of how to best proceed is developed with the consumer and staff.

Many times our staff will assist in drawing plans and getting bids from licensed contractors. Small jobs, such as mounting grab bars or installing lifts, are frequently performed by Adapt-Ability's rehabilitation technologists and technicians.

Who pays for Home Modification services?

We help people find funding for home modifications as part of our service. For those who qualify, grant funding may be available to assist. Some equipment and services may also be available through Medicare and Medicaid, insurance, or other governmental agencies such as the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. Funding is always explored on an individual basis.

What are the benefits of home modifications?

Many times relatively inexpensive equipment or modifications can allow for increased independence, ease care giving, and safety. Often people are not aware of the availability of such equipment, which can dramatically improve the quality of life for the entire family.
