Occupational Therapists are health care professionals who utilize evidence-based practice, research, scientific evidence, and a holistic perspective to promote independence, meaningful occupations, and patients’ functional ability to fulfill their daily routines and roles. Occupational Therapists are the only professionals recognized by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) to make recommendations for home modifications for persons with disabilities.
Occupational Therapists are experts at understanding the interrelations between a person’s abilities, personal needs and interests and their environment. We are passionate about designing beautiful accessible living spaces for individuals with various needs and abilities that promote safety and independence. OT’s have a strong understanding how an individual functions in her/his space which is essential in making recommendations that will enhance function and safety in the home environment. OT’s use person-centered focus to ensure that any modifications made to a home will meet both current and future needs. An assessment by an OT will save money in the long run by helping to avoid mistakes in product selections and design solutions. Accessibility is the name of the game and the key to enjoying your home as you progress in life!
