Home modification refers to converting or adapting the environment in order to make performing tasks easier, reduce accidents, and support independent living. It includes:

  • low-cost and simple changes to the home (removing hazards such as clutter, throw rugs; moving furnishings; and changing where activities occur (e.g., sleeping on the first instead of second floor);
  • adding special features or assistive devices such as grab bars;
  • extensive renovations (e.g., installing a roll-in shower and ramps); and
  • repairs such as improved wiring to eliminate the need for dangerous extension cords or fixing loose stair treads to improve safety.
Where to Get Help:

Depending on the extent of the modifications, there are several ways to modify and repair your home. You can: 1) do it yourself, or get a friend or relative to help; 2) hire a building professional (handyworker, remodeler, or contractor) and/or health care professional such as an occupational therapist to advise you on changes; or 3) contact a home modification and repair program or business that can advise you on funding, assessing your home, and product advisement.
