Circle of Hope is a registered NDIS Home Modifications provider in New South Wales. If you need some changes around your house to improve your access and move around more easily, we can help. We can improve your home environment by making changes to the structure, layout or fittings. We will work with you or your family to determine your personal or mobility struggles at home. From shower rails to wheelchair ramps, we can source all appropriate aids and modification requirements to help with this and organize the installation to make life easier for you.

Home Modifications and Specialist Disability Accommodation (NDIS Information)

This support category includes home modifications and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) supports.  Home modifications include design, construction, installation of, or changes to, equipment or non-structural components of the building, and installation of fixtures or fittings, to enable participants to live as independently as possible or to live safely at home.  Information on the pricing arrangements for Home Modifications can be found in the Assistive Technology and Consumables Code Guide on the NDIS website.

Here are some Home modifications which we can tailor to suit your needs :

  • Grab rails and handrails. If you need something to help steady you in your bathroom or on steps or a ramp, we can install grab rails and handrails inside and outside your home.
  • Ramps. An access ramp can make it easier for you to come and go from your home.
  • Disability specific equipment. We can make it easier for you to live comfortably with a range of equipment to help you take care of daily tasks.
  • Electronic modifications. Technology can make many things possible – do things around the house more easily with modifications such as automated or sensor-controlled devices.
  • Lifts. Improve your mobility and independence with a home lift.
  • Doorway widening. If you rely on a wheelchair or mobility aid, we can widen doors or entrances to make it easier for you to get around.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) also falls under home modifications. If you have an extreme functional impairment or very high support needs, you may be eligible for SDA funding support. SDA is a house, apartment or unit, or another type of building suitable to your specific needs.

We can guide you through the entire process from assessments, through to applications and support during any work undertaken.

If you are in need of home modifications to make a home more accessible, are unsure of the necessary steps you need to take or just feel the need to talk to someone regarding your options, you can feel confident that our team will be proficient in determining what’s needed and assisting in the application for the necessary funding.
