Aids & Adaptations

Grove is able to provide adaptations and aids to assist people with disabilities living in its homes. Work that will cost over £1,000 requires a recommendation from an Occupational Therapist. If an adaptation is straight forward and costs less than £1,000 Grove may proceed without an Occupational Therapist’s request if satisfied that it is required. Examples of adaptations and aids are:

  • installing a level access shower
  • installing a stair lift
  • fitting grab rails or additional hand rails for stairs
  • installing an intercom or door entry system
  • fitting lever taps

How to apply for an adaptation 

  • For adaptations that will cost more than £1,000, contact your GP and explain the difficulties you are experiencing.       Your GP can refer you to an Occupational Therapist who can assess your circumstances and recommend adaptations and aids you may require.
  • For adaptations under £1,000, contact staff at Grove’s office. Please note that some requests may be more complicated than staff are qualified to deal with and may still require professional advice.
