Complex home modifications are structural changes to your home and can range from bathroom and kitchen remodelling through to large ramps or lifts. Our occupational therapists are skilled in assessing you within your home and use their knowledge of your current and future needs to make changes that will enable you to remain in your home for as long as possible.
By partnering this knowledge with architects, designers and builders we can help you to achieve optimal living in your home.
