This section of our site looks at the subject of accessibility in the home and how your home can be adapted to improve the quality of life.

We have included information on the various types of specialist equipment available from large items such as stairlifts to smaller aids such as grab rails.

We have also provided a section on grants and financial issues relating to this type of home improvement.

With all new homes now having to be designed for wheelchair access, dealing with disability in the home is a topic that is growing in importance. As we are living longer and want to live in our homes for as long as we can, it is worth considering how your home can be tailored to suit your needs.
