How To Perform Home Modifications

About Me:

Thank you for visiting my website! I have been an occupational therapist for over 20 years and have worked with many different diagnoses in varied settings.
For the past 6 years, I have had the privilege of working with clients in their homes and developed a passion for keeping clients there for as long as possible. For this reason, I became a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS). Helping to prevent clients from needing a higher level of care, such as assisted living or skilled nursing, is very rewarding for me.
I also have a special interest in neurological conditions, such as strokes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia. I am a certified clinician with LSVT Big, which is a research-backed, intensive, and effective treatment protocol for clients with Parkinson’s disease and other related neurological diseases. In addition, I am a Certified Dementia Practitioner and enjoy helping clients with dementia engage in their lives and teaching caregivers how to best care for them.

Did you know ...60% of falls happen inside the home?

Did you know that the most profound effect of falling is the loss of function associated with independent living and that falls are the leading cause of death among those 65 years of age and older?
 75% of adults aged 50+ want to age at home, but are concerned that they can't because their homes aren't accessible. Together we can make this statistic ZERO and EMPOWER everyone to have an accessible home.

FAQs

  • What is Occupational Therapy?

    Occupational therapists help people, who have some sort of physical or cognitive deficit, to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities or occupations. Simply stated, we help clients to be able to participate in activities that are meaningful to them. This could include anything from brushing their teeth to writing a check or from cooking a meal to playing a game with a grandchild.
  • What is LSVT Big Treatment for Parkinson's Disease?

    This is a highly effective and intensive treatment protocol involving 1-hour, one-on-one treatment sessions 4 days per week for 4 weeks. There are also required exercises for homework that must be completed daily.
  • What is involved in the wellness program?

    The wellness program is a cash-based program where we continue to work with you to achieve your goals and to be consistent with your exercise program to prevent decline. This is an option after skilled services are no longer warranted.
  • What is aging in place?

    This simply means choosing to remain at home as you age, rather than moving to a senior-living apartment complex, assisted living facility, or skilled nursing facility. We can help you stay in your home for as long as possible!
  • There are CAPS certified builders available. Why consult with an occupational therapist?

    An occupational therapist has the unique ability to assess your strengths and deficits and see how you function in your home. In addition, we can make recommendations that take into account the progression of your illness or disease and the difficulties you may expect to experience later in life so you can plan for those now.
  • Are these services covered by insurance?

    Your medically necessary treatment is covered under Medicare Part B services. If you do not have Medicare Part B, there are out-of-network or cash-based options for you to receive services. 
  • How do we make an appointment or contact you?
