Modify Your Home to Better Serve You

As people age or experience health problems, they often identify obstacles in the design and layout of their home that interferes with their independence. Changes and modifications can make a home safer and more convenient for people of all ages, with or without health problems. Simple changes can make a big difference in continued independence, including increasing the bulb wattage in light fixtures, making storage items easier to reach on lower shelves and rearranging frequently used items.

If you are considering home modifications to meet specific needs, contact one of our Occupational Therapists. They can meet with you in your home to see how you move, reach and work, along with discussing your home environment. Together, you can decide how your present home can be improved to meet your changing needs.
