Implementing Home Accessibility Interventions for Older Adults

Green Clock Hours: 0.10 - 1.00

With shorter inpatient stays and hospital-at-home models, patients are often discharged home before reaching an independent functional level. Successful return home to continue the rehabilitation process may require home modifications and adaptive equipment to enhance safety, functional independence, and contribute to preventing readmissions. Occupational therapy professionals play a key role in assessing home safety and recommending appropriate home modifications and adaptive equipment specific to the patient’s sensory, cognitive, and physical deficits. In this course, you will learn practical knowledge on home safety assessments, home modifications, and adaptive equipment to make recommendations and enhance older adults’ safety and quality of life.

The goal of this course is to educate occupational therapy professionals in home health on implementing modifications for successful patient functioning in the home.
