Home Assessments (HA)

In Home Assessments are performed to increase independence and safety at home and community by assessing needs for appropriate assistive devices, need for assistance or supervision with personal care and daily activities at home.

At Progressive, our Occupational Therapist persforms a comprehensive evaluation of a person’s home and community environment, and his/her ability to perform daily living activities such as personal care (e.g.: dressing, bathing, transfers) and home management (e.g.: cooking, cleaning, managing finances, shopping). Addtionally, cognitive, emotional and physical function, along with family support is evaluated. An objective report, outlining functional abilities and limitations, and recommendations to improve function is provided. Recommendations might identify changes to the environment, equipment needs, adaptive techniques, education needs, and the necessary level of assistance required in the home.
