In-Home Functional Assessments

An in-home assessment is an individualized assessment of a person's ability to carry out their day to day tasks. This can include self care (dressing, bathing, moving about), home management (preparing meals, performing household chores), and leisure activities. A Cornerstone occupational therapist will consider your physical abilities and thinking skills, and the environment in which you live, keeping in mind your goals and desired activities. You will be provided with recommendations for ways to improve your safety and efficiency in these everyday tasks: suggestions may include specialized equipment, adapted ways of performing tasks, or changes to the environment.
