Modifying the home environments of older and disabled people is a well-established health and social care intervention, and occupational therapists are seen as the experts in this field of practice.
However, the current processes used when modifying home environments has been criticised for being disorganised and not founded on the theoretical principles and concepts underpinning the profession.
Enhancing Home Modifications solves these problems by building on Dr Rachel Russell’s award winning PhD research, to ensure that occupational practitioners can confidently take the ‘right actions', make the ‘right decisions', at the ‘right time’, so the ‘right modification' is installed.
