Standard requirements for height adjustable beds for disability accommodation services

The Victorian Aids and Equipment Program (A&EP) provides people with a permanent or long-term disability with subsidised aids, equipment, home, and vehicle modifications. The program aims to enhance the independence of people with a disability in their own home, facilitate their participation in the community and support families and carers.

Individuals wishing to apply for a subsidised bed and mattress require an assessment of their needs to determine the most suitable item that will assist them to maintain or enhance their independence. An Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist (known as a prescriber) is required to undertake an assessment of the individual's needs for a suitable bed.

The prescriber is required to refer to and complete the Standard requirements for height adjustable beds document when undertaking an assessment for a height adjustable bed for a person living in a department managed disability accommodation service.

The Standard requirements for height adjustable beds for people living in department-managed disability accommodation services is available to download.
