To find out if you qualify for an adaptation, you need to be assessed by Newcastle City Council Adult Services.
To arrange an assessment, phone the Adult Social Care Direct Team on 0191 278 8377, textphone 0191 278 8312 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Equipment Direct Team from the Adult Social Care Direct Team may be able to provide you with some equipment or carry out simple alterations to your home.
However, if your situation is more complicated, a member of the Occupational Therapy Team will visit you to carry out a more detailed assessment and decide with you the best way to help you live independently.
If it is not possible or reasonable to make adaptations then the option of rehousing may be considered.
