Denver Home Modification

At liveLife@Home, our occupational therapist/aging in place specialist is uniquely qualified to assist your parent(s) to maintain independence and safely age at home.   An occupational therapist (OT) works collaboratively with the person to determine what activities they want and need to do.  Our occupational therapist has expertise in the area of aging in place and will provide a comprehensive home safely and accessibility assessment to evaluate the person’s skills, abilities, and safety and make recommendations that will maximize a person’s ability to live at home for as long as possible.

The occupational therapist/aging in place specialist will go room by room and may suggest simple to complex home modifications, adaptive equipment to ease activities of daily living, and provide resource information for reputable contractors.  Home modifications may includes grab bars, stairlifts, simplifying the work space, widening doors, and decluttering key pathways.  The OT has developed solid relationships with contractors in the area who can do the work well and right the first time.

Whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of waiting until after your loved one has a disabling condition to make changes in the home.  A few changes to the home now can save you the stress of trying to make changes right before a person comes home from the hospital or rehab center.  Read this excellent New York Times article that high lights this point.

 

“I believe everyone’s home has special meaning to them. Perhaps it is a place of privacy, or a treasure trove of memories, or a symbol of independence.  I want to help you live your life at home for as long as possible.” ~Nancy Dillinger, Occupational Therapist
