Help to use or move around your home
Are you finding it difficult to use and move around your home?
You are entitled to have a conversation with the Occupational Therapy team if you are:
- a Birmingham resident
- elderly, or at least 18 years old
- have a physical disability making it hard to use or move around your home
This means that a specialist in the occupational therapy team will discuss your health and situation by telephone and may visit you in your home to have a conversation with you and provide advice.
The occupational therapist may recommend:
- minor adaptations to your home, such as installing hand rails or lever taps
- major adaptations, such as installing a stair lift or downstairs bathroom
If your home needs major adaptations, we’ll also complete a financial assessment with you. You may be eligible for financial help through schemes such as the Disabled Facilities Grant.
Contact us to arrange for an occupational therapist to visit.
