Independence Now helps Consumers to acquire home modifications to achieve the goal of living independently in the community. Some home modifications include ensuring access to bathroom facilities by installing grab bars, modified sinks and toilets, and modifications designed to ease the use of showers or bathtubs.
Recently, Independence Now assisted two Consumers to modify their bathrooms. IN staff coordinated with licensed contractors to install walk-in showers that are flush with the bathroom floor for ease of entry and allow room for a seat. Grab bars were strategically placed to maximize safety and prevent falls, and handheld shower heads were lowered for easy access while seated.
Modifications are provided to a consumer no more frequently than once every two years. There is a funding limit of $7,500 per request. Consumers are required to contribute 20% of the cost. Proof of income is required to determine eligibility.
