Home adjustment for seniors

Sometimes adjustment to your home are necessary due to physical inconveniences or extra living comfort wishes. If you are planning to stay and live in your house for some time, you can invest in constructional adjustments of your home. The consultants of de Verbouwwinkel can give you a personal advise of the adjustments that you wish. We can help with the plan, design and construction of practical adjustments so that you can live in greater comfort. The focus on a home adjustment is primarily on improving the access, mobility and living comfort.

Adjustments that we see the most are for example:

  • Adjustments in the bathroom; wall brackets, removing doorsteps, wider doors, bath lift or shower seat, toilet seat riser, etc. 
  • light switch at sitting height
  • Adjustment to the kitchen
  • Stair lift or platform lift
  • automatic door opener
  • prefab extension to bath- or bedroom or prefab informal care home

Home adjustments and Social support law

It can be possible that adjustments to your home will be reimbursed by your local government or health insurance. Some simple adjustments can be done by yourself and thus also be paid by yourself.

Are the adjustments necessary to live independent and without caretakers or to let your child grow up at home? And you are not able to realize the adjustments yourself? Than your local government is responsible for reimbursing the costs for the appropriate adjustments (also for youth). 

The consultant of de Verbouwwinkel can get information from your local government and check if you are entitled to a reimbursement. The local government can ask for a contribution for the adjustment, also if the adjustment is necessary for a child under 18 years old.

Local governments reimburse adjustments to your home for people entitled t the long-term care act, and who get care at home. For people with an indication for the long-term care act, a contribution does not apply. For children under 18 years old, the local government can ask for a contribution.

Reimbursement from your health insurer

Your health insurance can reimburse some tools or adjustments, such as technical support tools to control the lights, windows and doors. Also certain alarm systems such as flash ring bells for people with a hearing problem can eb reimbursed by the health insurer.

    Ik was op zoek naar inzicht in de kosten die het onderhoud van mijn woning zouden zijn in de komende jaren zodat ik hier op tijd voldoende geld voor op zij kan zetten. Het rapport dat door de Verbouwwinkel is opgesteld was duidelijk en zeer uitgebreid. Ik weet nu precies wat ik de komende 10 jaar kan verwachten aan onderhoud en welke kosten hiermee gemoeid zijn.

    Als voorzitter van de VVE van onze flat wilden we graag inzicht krijgen in de kosten van het onderhoud van het gebouw. De verbouwwinkel heeft hiervoor een MOP opgesteld. We hebben het contact met de verbouwwinkel als zeer prettig ervaren en het rapport is voor ons zeker bruikbaar!
