Blairtummock Housing Association recognises that it is a fact of life that people’s housing needs can change quite drastically over the years, usually through ill health, disability or old age. This often results in certain aspects of the house no longer being suitable, the most common problems being;
• Getting in and out of the bath;
• Internal and external doors being too narrow for wheelchairs;
• Need for additional handrails
Many of these problems can be overcome by making adaptations to the house such as:
• Installing a wet room
• Fitting handrails.
Restrictions in the number of medical adaptations
Although Blairtummock Housing Association is committed to helping people stay in their home and retain a good quality of life, we are restricted in the number of medical adaptations we can carry out each year by the level of grants we are awarded from Glasgow City Council that are specifically for this purpose.
Regrettably no guarantee can be given that the work requested will be carried out by the Association in any given year.
You should also be aware that it is sometimes extremely difficult, or indeed, impossible, to adapt a house to meet all the needs of an individual and it may be necessary for you to consider other options and other ways to meet your housing needs.
