Making your home a safe place to live
But it can also be big projects like modifying your bathroom to make it safer for you to use.
Creating a safe environment for you to live in
Lawn and garden care
Car and hard surfaces cleaning
Home and yard maintenance
Home maintenance is an important part of keeping your home safe as you get older. We understand that as you age, some jobs can become more difficult. We can assist with minor jobs around your home and garden to ensure your home remains safe and comfortable.
Common home and yard maintenance jobs include:
- Cleaning gutters
- Cleaning windows
- Installing/ checking smoke alarms
- Mowing the lawn/ garden care
- Changing light bulbs
Changing your home for the better
When we help people to live safely at home, home modifications is often the starting point. For example, we’ll modify your shower so you can access it with a walker, then your home care worker will help you transfer in and out safely.
Please note that home modifications require a referral and recommendation by an occupational therapist. We can assist by organising an assessment for you.
