Home Maintenance staff can do minor repairs and maintenance tasks. These might be called ‘handyman tasks’, and include changing light globes, smoke alarm batteries, and tap washers.
If you have already had a home safety assessment, staff can install handrails, ramps and fittings. To do this we need the technical drawings and instructions from an Occupational Therapist. To arrange a home safety assessment, contact an Occupational Therapist, your local Community Health Service or My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
