If an NDIS participant needs large scale home modifications so that their disability is better accommodated, it might be necessary to hire a building designer. Provided that the building designer’s services are directly related to your disability, and that the modifications represent value for money, the NDIS will fund the associated costs.
The NDIS breaks home modifications down into three categories:
- Simple, low cost modifications such as the installation of grab rails or mounted shower chairs.
- Minor modifications that do not alter the structure of a home, but require experienced professional support. An example would be non-structural door widening.
- Complex home modifications (CHM) that involve structural changes. These modifications generally have a high cost and require help from a specialist. They take more time to complete and might affect more than one area of the home.
