Home Safety and Caregiver Support to a Community Organization:

1 January 2010

Abstract

In this project, occupational therapy students worked with Washington County Aging, Disability and Veterans Services to determine the needs of agency intake staff who evaluate elders and caregivers who wish to remain in their own homes. An easily completed home assessment form was created to help target needs for additional services. Students also recommended the use of a quality of life assessment to determine the needs for respite care as a means to identify successful outcomes of agency services. Focus groups determined the effectiveness of and satisfaction with the model by intake staff.
