Assessment for Home Modifications

Our Occupational Therapists are skilled at recognizing how home environments affect an individual’s ability to perform desired tasks. Our occupational therapists evaluate a client’s home environment to identify barriers to performance such as features that increase the risk of falls (e.g., loose banisters) or present other hazards (e.g., overloaded electrical outlets).

They can also review aspects of the home that may require modification to facilitate performance such as handrails or grab bars that can assist a client who has difficulty balancing during self-care activities. As part of the assessment, our occupational therapists review how a person interacts with their environment to complete a task.  Our goal is to maximize our client’s safety and independence in their home.
