Occupational Therapy – our qualified, experienced and registered Occupational Therapists provide in-home assessments with the aim of improving your safety and independence both at home and in the community.
We will discuss what difficulties you or the person you care for may be having with simple day to day activities. It may be that you are starting to have difficulty getting out of bed or out of a chair, or that you are worried about having a fall.
The home assessment is comprehensive and will take into consideration any medical conditions, current medication, and your ability to safely access the home and community. We will identify risks and hazards that may compromise your safety or independence.
The Occupational Therapist will make their recommendations in consultation with you and/or your carer and will first identify any simple solutions. This might be assistive equipment available for purchase or hire or a simple grab rail modification in the bathroom or toilet. More complex recommendations may be required such as a full bathroom modification.
