Home adaptations for the disabled
Social Support Act (WMO)
The Social Support Act (WMO- Wet Maatschappelijke Ondersteuning) helps people live independently as long as possible.
The government’s goal is let all citizens, young or old, irrespective of social or economic status, regardless of limitations, to participate in society.
Municipalities carry out the WMO. They have significant policy freedom when shaping the implementation; it therefore varies per municipality.
Many municipalities organise the actual adjustments and provisions themselves, others organise a budget and leave it up to the residents themselves to approach a contractor.
Ask your municipality about the possibilities for you.
In the context of the WMO, Klusbedrijf Plantinga works for several municipalities in the northeastern regions. You can also contact us directly to carry out your adjustments
You will find the national website, which contains general public information, at www.zorgwijzer.nl.
This website briefly describes the intention of the new law and what it could mean for you personally.

When accessibility becomes a necessity
Are you experiencing mobility issues or do you rely on the use of a walker, wheelchair or scooter?
Then you know that every irregularity is an insurmountable obstacle.
Adapting the pavement outside is often the cheapest and most desirable solution, but not always possible.
For this and for accessibility problems indoors, Klusbedrijf Plantinga has a number of attractive and practical solutions for virtually any obstacle.
Wish to go out for a day or planning a vacation, but dreading the (literal) barriers?
We offer many portable solutions.
