Home Assessments

Simple Changes Can Deliver Maximum Lifestyle Benefits

 

Your home is your castle.

But what if it no longer supports your day-to-day living?

Is someone you love is struggling with daily tasks or mobility at home?

The first step is an occupational therapy home assessment.

Modify The Home To Enjoy Life Independently

Our expert Occupational Therapist will visit the home to learn about the challenges of the space.

We suggest numerous practical modifications to improve daily life. 

“Our clients can regain independence and enjoy life with confidence because their home set up supports their daily needs.”

Sarah Collison, occupational therapist and founder of Verve OT
