Home Safety Evaluation: Once a person has had a fall or a “close call fall” it is highly recommended that they have a home safety evaluation. Why did you fall? Was it medically related or was it as a result of your environment? Or a combination of the two? Your environment should be your safety zone.
OT after a Hospitalization/Rehabilitation: When a person is discharged home either Home Health services (Medicare A) or Outpatient therapies (Medicare B) will be recommended. Home Mobility VT is an Outpatient (Medicare B) practice. A person does NOT have to be “homebound” to receive Medicare B services which is often a draw for many.
Inspiration Session for Family: Are you looking for gift ideas and ways to improve a current situation to improve ease and safety in the home? Finding the perfect gift for Mom and/or Dad is not easy. Parents don’t want more stuff — they often already have 50 years of memories piled up in your old bedrooms! Instead give them a gift of beautiful grab bars or a safe chair with wheels and brakes they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves!

Thoughtful consideration of what future accessibility needs may be will save significant cost over the long term, especially if it means having to redo a brand new shower.

Assist and Expedite Discharge from nursing home or hospital: Surgeries such as joint replacements, back surgeries and bone fractures require short term use of durable medical equipment for the recuperation phase. Ideally, the environmental barriers are addressed prior to discharge to avoid caregivers from feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
