Home Modification

OT assessment for home modification will relate function, ability and goals of client. Occupational Therapist will recommend modifications that suits both client needs and Australian Standards.

 

Modification can range from a single rail to assist with bathroom use or major structural work to wet areas, kitchens and home access.

When a third party is funding a modification, best practice requires an Occupational Therapist to assess the client. The outcome will be a report which outlines the function, goals and abilities of client. If modification to the home is recommended, the OT will provide a clinical justification for the need of home modification.

This process means recommendation will meet both the needs of the client and satisfy guidelines for funding body. Different entitlement schemes or funding groups will have criteria for OT to consider when making recommendations.

If client wishes to fund modification privately, OT can work with client and builder to satsify client functional needs as well as Australian Building Standards.
