Living Skills Assessments and Training Programs

Our Occupational Therapists can conduct Living Skill Assessments to identify what supports are needed for someone to live safely and independently in their home.

Our therapists are committed to building our clients skills and capacities to live as independently as possible. We will visit you in your home environment to discuss your needs and goals, assess your living environment and observe how you complete day to day activities. We can then provide recommendations on how to achieve your goals and complete these activities in a safe and independent manner. We can also complete assessments and recommendations for supported accommodation.

  • Toileting
