Home Accessibility Modification
How does an accessibility home modification differ from a home remodel? The purpose of the accessibility home modification is to provide an accessible and safe environment while you are in your home. Accessibility home modifications ensure that you are safe while you take care of your basic needs within your home. These modifications are not home repairs or new appliance installations. Rather, these modifications help you to feel safe in your home while also being independent.
An accessibility home modification can be the difference you need to safely stay in your home for years to come. These projects can include installing:
- Exterior ramps and interior threshold ramps
- Grab bars
- Walk-in/roll-in showers
- Walk-in/roll-in tubs
- Elevators– vertical elevators and step elevators
- Ceiling mounted track systems
- Roll-under sinks/vanity
The existing space may need to be reconfigured for better mobility, and doorways and hallways may need to be widened to allow for better accessibility.
To ensure your safety, all the professionals we hire to perform the work in your home must pass several checks (state and federal background and exclusion) and be HIPPA compliant. They must also be licensed and insured and provide a W9.
To begin the process, your case manager or provider completes and submit a referral form to ConnectAbility of MN and we will schedule appointments to meet with you and your case manager. Though we prefer to conduct an environmental home assessment as the first step, it is not required.
All of our services are available to be billed on private insurance as well as a private pay option.
