When you hire an occupational therapist who is a home modification specialist you can expect:
• Your home functioning optimally for you and your loved ones
• Fewer fall risk areas in your home
• The ability to perform your daily activities with greater ease and safety
• Continuing a desired activity or hobby in your home
• The pleasure of welcoming friends and family of ALL abilities to your home
• Maximized safety & independence for those living with dementia & their caregivers
With a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy, extensive additional training and 10+ years of experience helping people to be independent and safe in their homes, my goal is to help people and their families to age in place successfully.
Home modification is the process of making changes to your home that will allow the home to work for your specific needs. The focus is always on maximizing function and safety, reducing fall risk, and expanding independence; home modification is for EVERYONE.
Home modification can include simple changes such as improved lighting, addition of anti-slip treads on stairways and lever doorknobs. At the extreme, home modification may include complete renovation of an interior room or entry/exit and may include landscape changes to allow for level entry. While a contractor will be needed to implement these changes, it is the home modification liaison who ‘translates’ the rationale and specific recommendations made for your home. Simply following ADA guidelines will not work; these guidelines are generic and made to apply in public settings. You deserve to have home modifications specific to your home.
As your consultant I will use your reported goals, strengths, medical history and critical evaluation of your home and how you function in it, to make the best home modification plan for you. We will tour your home together with a focus on the bathroom, kitchen and exit/entry. We discuss which steps you may be ready to implement and which plans you may wish to hold off on; this can be an ongoing discussion with graded implementation.
Planning ahead for the curveballs that life can throw at us is the best thing you can do for yourself. Let’s work together to create a home which will support you through ALL stages of life.
