Government assistance could help transform your home, so you have the accessiblity to enhance your independence and improve your quality of life.

In a nutshell:

  1. You may be eligible for funding to modify your home.
  2. We make and install equipment to meet your specifications.
  3. Minor changes to your home could transform your life.

If you're eligible for funding through a Home Care Package, the Commonwealth Home Support Program, or Department of Veterans' AffairsOmnicare's Home Modifications and Maintenance Service can liaise with occupational therapists (OTs) to meet your wishes and needs in and around the home.

Home Mods - as it's known commonly - has been changing clients' lives since 1990, manufacturing and installing mobility aids and safety equipment, and tending to the upkeep of house and garden.

With carpentry and metalwork workshops at our Port Macquarie base, the equipment we manufacture is customised to meet OT specifications and each client's home. This means there's minimal disruption to daily routines, with just the measuring and installation taking place on-site.

Our Omnicare Home Mods service undertakes interior and exterior jobs - everything from minor kitchen modifications, to major bathroom refurbishments. We also install standardised equipment such as stair lifts, bidets and grab-rails.

As well as employing our own builders, carpenters and toolmaker, we have a roster of vetted subcontractors - plumbers, plasterers, electricians, concreters, painters. We can also recommend private contractors to undertake work that doesn't qualify for government funding.

For many people, navigating the various Federal Government assistance programs can be challenging and confusing - particularly given the major changes occurring within the aged care and veterans' affairs sectors.

The Omnicare client support team is on hand to provide support and guidance in determining your eligibility for the relevant government assistance. We may be able also to help you (if you're 65 years and over; 50 years and over if you're ATSI) seek further funding for major modifications.

Omnicare adopts a client-centred approach to all its operations, with a particular emphasis on promoting independence and safety at home.

By choosing our Omnicare Home Mods service to meet your domestic needs, you can be assured of the expertise, experience and high standards we've developed as one of the first specialised service provider in the sector.
