Occupational Therapy

Personal Care Assessments

When an injury, illness, or age related disability limits your ability to perform the everyday tasks that are important to you, then an occupational therapist can help to prevent, solve, or minimize the problems or barriers that interfere with your independence. Occupational therapists are skilled in evaluating the functional level of individuals through close examination of their physical abilities within their specific environments; home, work or recreationally.

Home site personal care assessments are suitable for seniors or those congnitively or physically challenged having difficulty performing their activities of daily living (ADL) in their home or community. This type of assessment is conducted by an occupational therapist who is able to determine an individual’s ability to perform their activities of daily living (ADL) and make recommendations for changes. Safety and independence are the primary considerations of the assessment.
