Handicap Modifications for your Omaha Home
Are you or is someone you love in need of handicap modifications for your Omaha home and don’t know who to call? Recently, I received a call from a client who was having difficulty getting in and out of her Ranch home. She was considering installing a garage lift and didn’t know who to contact, how much it would cost or most of all, if she could even afford it. If she didn’t know who to contact, there must be many more people in need of that information.
After researching this for her, I discovered there are two modification companies recommended by the State of Nebraska. Both handicap modification companies come out to your home and do what they call a home assessment. Basically they want to talk with you about how you use the home, what your frustrations are and discuss how some adjustments can make it easier for you to get around. They will provide a an estimate for the work you discussed at the assessment and then it is up to you to decide what modification you want done, if any.
Some things are as simple as installing handicap door hinges so the door swings open wider. Other times, it can range from raising or lowering closet bars, installing shower seats, ramps, handicap bars to even a complete remodel if that is what you are looking to have done.

Medicaid Handicap Assistance Is Available
Additional assistance is available for people on Medicaid. The State of Nebraska has funding available, while it lasts, to pay for state approved modifications. In order to be considered, you will need to complete and submit an application. The fiscal year starts each July and is available for approved modifications until the funds run out.
