Who would install your home modifications?

If we recommend any rails, ramps or modifications be made in your home, we refer to only the most reliable tradespeople who offer a prompt and professional service. Alternatively, if you have a tradesman in mind, we are happy to work with them. 

Your home....your choice.

With our tradespeople, all basic installations such as grab rails can likely be installed within a week of the in-home assessment.

 

Equipment Hire

Do you require equipment to improve your access or independence at home? Whether you need it for a short period of rehabilitation following your surgery or would like to ‘try before you buy’ we offer short term loans of basic equipment for every day activities.

Request equipment hire here.
