For Active, Safe and Independent Living
There are many factors that can make your home environment limiting or unsafe. The once familiar & secure environment of the home can become an overwhelming place for someone following an injury or illness. The role of assessing the home environment from the person’s perspective is one which is critical to maintain a person’s daily routines and self esteem. Our Occupational Therapists are trained and experienced in completing home assessments and rehabilitation.
