Independent In-Home Evaluation

An Independent In-Home Evaluation is designed to evaluate the claimant’s ability to perform his or her activities of daily living and to identify any barrier(s) that may be present specific both to the claimant’s physical presentation and home environment, and which may hinder the return to full function. Contingent upon the referring source’s request, recommendations for housekeeping, attendant care and caregiving assistance are made as appropriate. In many cases, whether or not the occupational therapist believes that the claimant requires external assistance with activities of daily living, assistive devices are recommended to help prevent re-injury, alleviate pain, or enable the claimant to perform a task independently or in a modified manner.
