An adaptation is a change to your home which will help you stay independent and safe. If you have a carer - it may also help them look after you.
Many companies can help adapt your home - you'll find details on our Locate - care and support in County Durham website. If you live in social housing your landlord may be able to help.
Disabled facilities grants
If you struggle to get around the house safely because you are elderly or disabled, a disabled facilities grant can help fund suitable adaptations to your property.
