Our Housing Advisors are an essential part of our housing modification service.
Enable New Zealand provides housing modifications to people with disabilities on behalf of Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People and ACC.
Our Housing Advisors work with builders, occupational therapists and Enable’s own Professional Advisors to help clients get the most appropriate modification in a cost-effective way.
When we receive a request from an occupational therapist for a modification on a client’s house, our Housing Advisors facilitate the process.
They make sure the designs for house modifications meet the requirements of the client and fit within the funding criteria of Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People or ACC.
The job of a Housing Advisor is a mix of technical knowledge and implementing processes.
They have an understanding of building and construction, which enables them to interpret plans and communicate effectively with contractors.
Housing Advisors also use administrative processes to get modifications completed on time. This includes in-depth knowledge of the funding criteria from the Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People or ACC, and the use of Enable’s IT systems.
