Home Modification Victoria Directors.
Your project starts with a 90-minute consultation at your home with one of our Home Modification Specialists and an occupational therapy assessment if required.
Our Home Modification Specialists listen carefully to your needs, assess your property and produce draft concepts on the day.
Our extensive experience means we can quickly assess the modification potential of an existing home and scope options to best meet your requirements and budget.
We apply our access and design expertise, construction knowledge and cost-saving suggestions to create a vision for your completed project.
After the initial consultation, your Home Modification Specialist will develop your preferred concept into more detailed Schematic Design Plans that create the shared vision for the end result and look.
We provide a Project Plan that outlines, step-by-step, the best way to take the design forward to construction, identifies any potential planning and development issues, and estimates the costs involved.
You can expect an individualised approach that considers the needs of you and your family, provides exceptional value for money, and excellent design that complies with the National Construction Code and local planning requirements.
There are a range of funding options to assist eligible people with disability and older people requiring home modification. There are a number of agencies that may provide funding including My Aged Care, local and state government bodies and insurance agencies.
Home Modification Victoria often works with these agencies and manages the process where funding may be provided by a third party.
