Home Modification Reforms
From 1 July 2012, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) introduced a series of reforms to community care home modification services. Following the introduction of the reforms on 1 July 2012, further changes were made effective on 23 July 2012. Referrals to home modification services in the Hunter and Central Coast local planning areas continue through the Community Care Access Point. All other areas have returned to previous referral pathways while the reforms continue to develop.
The following documents are attached to guide and inform your implementation of the reforms:
- NSW Service Type Guidelines for HACC Home Modification 2012 (PDF)
- HACC Home Modification Access and Prioritisation Policy (PDF)
- HACC Home Modification Fees Policy (PDF)
