Why get a home safety Evaluation?
A home safety evaluation is an important way to identify potential hazards in your home and prevent injuries. It’s performed by a licensed health-care professional, such as an occupational therapist.
The home safety evaluation may also include home improvement recommendations to help you navigate your environment more securely, such as installing handrails in the bathroom or making sure your house has adequate lighting. A home safety evaluation can be an important preventive measure, especially because falls are one of the most common sources of injury among seniors.
An occupational therapist will evaluate the safety of your home and make recommendations for modifications if needed. Getting a home safety evaluation may reduce your risk of injury and help you live independently in your own home for as long as possible.
For example, an occupational therapist may recommend a bath seat and a grab bar in the client’s shower. There are a variety of options for equipment but there may only be a few that are appropriate for each client.
