Modify your house for increased mobility and safety

Starlight Care believe that modifying our client’s home offers a wide range of short-term and long-term benefits to both the person with a disability and their family and friends.

  • Enhanced accessibility: By modifying entrances, installing ramps, and widening doorways, people with disabilities can move around their home more easily and comfortably.
  • Improved safety: Home improvements like grab rails, non-slip flooring and appropriate lighting can reduce the risk of falls and accidents, creating a safer environment.
  • Increased independence: Adaptive equipment, such as modified appliances, voice-activated devices and adjustable-height benchtops can enable individuals with disabilities to perform daily tasks more easily and independently.
  • Better comfort: Customised and ergonomic furniture, such as adjustable beds or specialised seating can provide better support and comfort, promoting better physical and mental well-being.
  • Enhanced privacy: Home improvements can help create private spaces, such as accessible bathrooms or bedrooms, allowing individuals with disabilities to maintain their dignity and privacy.
  • Social inclusion: A more accessible home environment encourages social interaction and participation, leading to increased feelings of belonging and decreased isolation.
  • Reduced carer strain: By making a home more accessible and safe for individuals with disabilities, carers may experience less physical and emotional stress, leading to a better quality of life for all.
  • Cost savings: In the long run, home improvements can reduce the need for more expensive care options, such as assisted living facilities or long-term care institutions.
  • Greater peace of mind: Knowing that a home is safe and accessible for a person with disabilities provides a sense of security and comfort for both the individual and their loved ones.
