A housing assessment is a thorough, holistic assessment of an individual in their home environment. Our Occupational Therapist will carry out a one-to-one housing assessment to gain an understanding of the underlying difficulties that result in an individual being unable to complete their day to day activities in their own home. The assessment includes a detailed discussion and practical assessment and will provide reasons for why an individual is experiencing difficulties.
Following the assessment a comprehensive housing report will be drawn up providing a summary of the housing assessment completed by one of our Occupational therapist. The housing assessment report will contain the following information:
