Building Services

Our home modifications and maintenance team help keep aged and disabled customers safe and independent in their home by modifying and maintaining the home environment to enhance individual capacity and needs.

KKCS specializes in providing quality and innovative construction services and support products that help customers remain living in their own home. We work with a strong network of approved suppliers to provide you with the best solution to meet your needs for everyday living.

KKCS has been providing quality assessments and disability access services to customers for more than 20 years. We take great pride in improving the lifestyle, mobility and safety of our customers.

The assessment for home modifications includes both the internal and external home environment. KKCS can offer free or subsidised assessments for eligible customers (we can often determine your eligibility over the phone). Assessments may also be covered by Medicare and private health funds. Our team of highly qualified, friendly and experienced staff are always happy to be of service so please contact us if you have any questions regarding eligibility or assessment.

Occupational Therapy

Typically the home modification process starts via a referral from an Occupational Therapist, either one of our own KKCS team members or another OT that you’ve been introduced to by a health care professional. An O.T. is a qualified practitioner who ensures people are able to participate in or complete everyday activities, thereby promoting independence, safety and a continued quality-of-life.

The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) is usually the service that manages applications and funding for home modifications for those over 65 years of age. This program is administered through the My Age Care portal.

If you are under 65

If you have crossed over to the NDIS you can access our Home Modification service through your NDIS package. If you, your carer or your O.T. believes you may require assistance to make improvements or alternation to your living space, please feel free to discuss this with our team.  Home modifications which are coordinated and approved through the NDIS are not capped at any specific number but must be able to be funded through your package.
