Did you know:

  • More than 15,000 DIY home modifications are undertaken by people with disabilities and older Australians each year in NSW alone? 
  • Home modifications can reduce care-giving hours by 42 % and increase health related quality of life by 40%
Home modifications assist older people to be more independent, and have shown to improve quality of life and reduce the need for ongoing assistance. 

The development of the DIY modify App, was codesigned with and by people with disabilities, carers and older people and was fully funded by the Department of Family and Community Services to help Australian consumers make decisions around purchasing five common home modifications including grab rails and handheld showers.
