Sometimes your home environment could be more safe and accessible with some simple modifications and equipment such as ramps, rails and other aides. The LTU Occupational Therapist (OT) can assess your home and suggest ways to make daily tasks easier for you. Contact your Nurse Coordinator to make an appointment with the OT.
