Medical Adaptations

The Co-operative receives a set budget each financial year from Glasgow City Council to pay for aids and adaptations to tenants’ homes to enable our customers to live there as long as possible. The types of medical adaptations the Co-operative would install include:

  • Over-bath showers
  • Level-access shower trays
  • Wet floor bathrooms (ground floor only)
  • Non-slip floor coverings
  • Handrails
  • Door entry systems

In order for the Co-operative to install an adaptation, you must first approach Glasgow City Council's Social Work Department (telephone 0141 276 2420) who will arrange to send an Occupational Therapist to make an assessment and recommend what you may require. These recommendations will be prioritised and passed to the Co-operative by the Occupational Therapist and will inform the Co-operative as to which adaptations will be carried out first on the basis of need.

Should you require assistance in getting a referral to the Occupational Therapist please contact the Co-operative.
