Aging in Place & Home Modifications
"Aging in place" is a catchphrase that describes baby boomers who are choosing to modify their existing home as they age, rather than move to assisted living environments. If you or someone you love is experiencing a decline in safety, or is frustrated by a lack of independence, the Palisades’ team can help. Our occupational therapy practitioners will come to your home, evaluate your environment and recommend adaptations to prevent injury or frustration.
Through this service, we focus on reducing falls, promoting a healthy lifestyle and teaching clients to safely carry out their activities of daily living. Palisades' practitioners are a valuable asset to professional teams, and are experienced in working with clients and their caregivers, as well as architects and construction companies who help to carry out modifications. Call today to schedule your "Aging in Place" evaluation, or speak with a Palisades' occupational therapy practitioner.
For most of us, driving is a way to stay connected to our world: to visit friends, go shopping and remain mobile. Unfortunately, aging can challenge our senses, along with physical and mental capabilities and ultimately may impact our ability to safely transport ourselves and others.
At Palisades Rehab, our occupational therapy practitioners have the expertise to assess vision, cognition, motor skills and perception. Through this evaluation, therapists can help older drivers compensate for life changes that impact their driving. And, when it's time to give up driving, our OT team helps patients (1) adjust to the idea, (2) consider other forms of transportation, and (3) remain as independent and safe as possible.
