Home Safety Assessments

Fall Prevention

Injuries from falls can result in costly medical expenses that can be prevented. A home safety assessment can help identify potential trip hazards as well as identify options for adaptive equipment (such as grab bars, tub transfer bench, bed rails, etc.,). In instances where a complete remodel of a bathroom, kitchen, or other living space is needed, your occupational therapist can work with your contractor to design your space for optimal accessibility. 

Environmental Modifications for Cognition

Our cognition plays a big role in keeping us safe. When cognition is impacted from conditions such as a developmental delay, traumatic brain injury, or stroke - it can decrease safety awareness. In these cases, your occupational therapist can identify modifications that can be made to your home to improve safety. This might include smart stove controls that automatically turn off, strategically placed visual reminders, or door alarm systems for loved ones that wander.
