Home Safety: Home Fall Risk Assessment
A Home Fall Risk Assessment is a tool that provides the home owner with the assurance that their home is as safe as possible in helping to prevent a fall. Falls in the home are the leading cause of emergency room injuries and often create pain, physical and financial stress. We meet with you in your home, learning how you use your space, your concerns and a walk through of your environment. We provide you with a Fall Risk Assessment Report with suggestions, simple solutions and a “to do list” to make your home a safer place to live.
Hospital to Home Transition Assessment
Before or after a discharge from the hospital we can assess and suggest resources to prepare the home to provide for as much safety and independence as possible.
Should I Stay or Should I Move Assessment
We meet with you in your home or business to help support and guide you through determining the best options for you. We help you to develop a check list of the options, the pros and the cons taking into account the emotional, physical and the cost analysis of the choices.
Universal Design Assessment
A Universal Design Assessment of the home or business is a comprehensive tool that is designed to evaluate the space for the client and users that will enable independence and support health and wellness for people of all ages and abilities. The assessment involves an extensive client interview recognizing individual differences, your day to day activities and identifying home or business modifications that provide the best return on investment. Universal design assessment of your entire space with suggested modifications will:
1. Reduce the risk of accidents
2. Make tasks simpler by decreasing environmental demands
3. Support healthcare and caregiving
4. Support social interaction and engagement
In identifying whether your needs are urgent, progressive or planning for the future
we will work with you to create a “to do list” situated to your budget, resources and time.
