Sometimes assistive devices might not be enough to overcome access barriers though. If there are physical barriers in the home that need to be addressed, OSCIL’s Home Access/Home Modification team can provide a complete assessment to find the right solution. This might include making modifications to the home itself, like adding a ramp or renovating a bathroom.
Finding Accessible Housing
In some cases modifications to the home might not be possible or an individual might be searching for a new place to live. In that case, OSCIL will work with the person to locate affordable and/or accessible housing, including subsidized apartments and assistive living facilities.
