We are committed to supporting people with disabilities and other needs to live independently in their own homes. We can do this by modifying or adapting your home, but we can also help you to move to a more suitable property, or provide you with help and assistance if your needs aren’t physical.  We can install a wide range of aids and adaptations in your home including:

  • Grab rails
  • Mopstick handrails to stairs
  • Lever taps
  • Level access showers
  • Widening of paths
  • Stair-lifts
  • Specialist smoke alarms for the deaf


We are fairly unique in that we employ our own Occupational Therapist, which allows us to offer a quicker and more responsive service to you.  Our Occupational Therapist will assist you and work closely with our surveyors to advise how any adaptation can best meet your needs. If you would like us to consider adapting your home, or to find out more about our aids and adaptations service you should e-mail: disability.adaptations@teignhousing.co.uk or call 01626 322722
