What is a Housing Adaptation?

Summary (optional)
start content

A housing adaptation is a physical alteration to your home which helps you get in and out of your home, improves mobility within your home and allows you to have safe access to essential facilities in the main areas of your home.

There are three types of adaptations; a Small, Medium and Large Adaptation.

  • Examples of Small Adaptations include: grab rails, mop stick rails, a key safe, extra lighting.
  • Examples of Medium Adaptations include: A stair lift, a walk in shower, a wet room, a ramp installed.
  • Examples of Large Adaptations include: An extension, widening doorways, a through floor lift.

We are committed to providing a customer centred housing adaptions service in Conwy to help disabled and/or older people to become more independent within their own home.
