Home modifications

Some changes may need to be made to a home for you to continue to live independently and safely. Changes range from small ones like adding assistive technology to much larger projects such as making structural changes. Some changes could include:

  • Adding grab bars
  • Adding ramps
  • Replacing twist-water faucets with levers
  • Changing to door handles instead of knobs
  • Converting a downstairs room to a bedroom
  • Widening hallways

Visit the consumer help section of the Oregon Construction Contractors Board website for information on hiring a contractor for these changes.

ADRC of Oregon staff are available to help you explore your options to meet your current needs or create a plan for the future.
