Some clients, because of injuries they sustained in a transport accident, may need home modifications in order to access their home.
The TAC can pay for home modifications following:
- Advice on all housing/residential options from a registered occupational therapist or a Benefits and Support Services Assessor
- Prior written approval of the scope of the modifications by the TAC, including costings.
The TAC can pay for modifications to a vehicle regularly used by a client to enable them to:
- Enter and access a vehicle
- Load a mobility aid
- Drive (or be transported safely if they are unable to drive or be driven safely)
Where the existing vehicle cannot be modified, or the client does not have access to a vehicle, the TAC can assist the client to purchase a vehicle.
