Need help to modernize or adapt your home?

Downsizing or moving home is one solution if your home does not suit your needs or the needs of your family as you get older. An alternative solution is to modernize or adapt your home so it suits your needs and enables you to stay in your home in the neighbourhood and community you have chosen to live. Changes like a ramp to your front door, downstairs toilet facilities or replacing the bath with a shower can make a huge difference to how someone can continue to live well and independently in their own home.
