Course Description:   A home assessment is a requirement of Medicare and CMS in the mobility evaluation and recommendation process.  This course will give further insight into some of the challenges our clients face within their environments of anticipated use, as well as some helpful tips and tricks for specifying equipment needs to increase access function through available options. With a good understanding of the environmental challenges that each of our clients face routinely, the multidisciplinary evaluation team will be better suited to effectively document equipment recommendations specific to the client’s needs to increase functional independence in all of their ADL’s through physical environmental access. We will focus on typical rooms and access limitations in the home throughout this course, as most of these options will aid in access to environments outside of the home as well.
