aids and adaptations

County Durham Housing Group’s Occupational Therapy (OT) service primarily undertakes housing need assessments in the Dale & Valley, Durham City and East Durham Homes areas.

Minor adaptations to improve your safety and independence, and meet your long-term needs, from your landlord may include grabrails next to your bath or toilet; or a handrail next to your steps or stairs.

Full OT assessments are undertaken by Durham County Council.
