Accessibility Modifications: Retrofit vs. New Construction
Attendees will learn how to better understand the person with a disability, their families and their caregivers. The talk will touch on how I assess the functional abilities of a person using my knowledge of the various medical conditions and injuries that can affect someone’s ability to partake in normal daily activities without aids or assistance from others.
Learn about how I assess a home that requires modifications to meet the needs of the person with a disability and the pros and cons of an accessibility modification project compared to constructing a “purpose-built home.”
Understand what levels of accessibility are achievable in a retrofit scenario and how the various modifications will impact the person, family, and caregivers. Attendees will also learn more about the benefits (and detriments) of constructing a purpose-built home for a person who needs one and the importance of having an OT and/or PSW on your team.
