Combining the expertise of Interior Design and Occupational Therapy to produce the most beneficial and best looking home modifications.

When you need to modify your home to meet changing healthcare needs, you can go one of two ways: you can use people from the construction industry – general contractors, the local handyman, or your cousin Brett who knows a little bit about everything (!) – or you can call in healthcare professionals such as Occupational Therapists and public clinicians. But whichever way you go, you’ll typically be left with a problem: construction workers won’t provide for any condition-specific challenges you may have, now or in the future, leaving you stuck with continuing upgrades; and professional healthcare clinicians may create a space that has an institutional feel to it, one that isn’t you, one that isn’t your home any more.

You don’t have to settle for one or the other: you can have your cake and eat it! Living By Design will design you a home that not only meets your present and future healthcare needs, but also looks and feels the way you want it to!

We can do this because we’re fully qualified in both disciplines. We’ll also take care of all your project management needs, relieving you of those particular stresses and complications – we’ll set and agree budgets with you, hire contractors and professionals, and ensure that the work is done on time and within budget. In short, we’ll keep the project team accountable, so that you get value for money.

If you’re looking to modify your home, but don’t know what needs to be done, or don’t have the time or energy or ability to coordinate it all – or you need to put all this in place for an elderly parent – then Living By Design is your go-to service.

Suitable for: people wanting more extensive home modifications but not knowing what specific changes are needed and not having the time, energy or abilities to coordinate renovations; adult children with older parents also facing this situation.
