Advice and support in applying for a housing adaptation measure (WAM).

WAM is an instrument for creating living space for people with disabilities or in need of care that takes their individual needs into account if their housing needs cannot be met in any other way.

WAMs are all measures of a structural and non-structural nature that make it easier or possible for the disabled person or person in need of care to lead a life largely independent of outside help or that facilitate their care, e.g. by relatives or other persons.
