Environmental Modifications & Adaptive Equipment

Environmental modifications are changes made to a space in or around a person's home that improves their accessibility or safety while performing everyday tasks. Modifications may include alterations or additions to the home that change the layout or structure. Adaptive equipment are specialty devices used by people to make activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing easier to perform. These devices can be purchased off-the-shelf or custom made, but the type of equipment needed varies depending on the individual's abilities and the task they are doing.

Enabled Living's team, which includes an occupational therapist with an Executive Certificate in Home Modifications (ECHM), are experts at assessing people while they perform tasks to identify areas where adaptive equipment or environmental modifications can be incorporated in the home to improve their independence and quality of life. Learn about some of the modifications and adaptive equipment Enabled Living specializes in below, and contact us to discuss your needs with our therapists.
