Home Modifications - OT Ramps and Rails Workshop, QLD

LifeTec is conducting a series of workshops during 2015 that will be lecture style with extensive use of photos to illustrate examples of home modification solutions to barriers within and outside the home. Resources and tools will be discussed and participants will receive an extensive information pack.
