Residential Accessibility Assessments

This residential accessibility assessment is conducted in the individual's home to identify barriers to access and independence. Mobility and adaptive equipment, as well home modification concept solutions are provided. We work with architects and builders to help individuals living with disabilities to reach their full functional potential with maximum independence and accessibility.

Job Demands Analysis are an essential prerequisite for a Job-Specific Functional Capacity Evaluation.

Ergonomic Assessments/Worksite Assessments

The assessment investigates human factors, task requirements, workstation organization, and environmental factors.  A detailed report is provided with photographs outlining the risk factors for the employee and the recommended behavioural, administrative and engineering control measures to reasonably accommodate the employee.

 I have worked with a lot of life care planners and found you extremely knowledgeable. I particularly enjoyed and valued your hands-on approach and the continuous interaction between the two of us regarding the development of a plan and ensuring the client’s needs are being taken care of. Most importantly and relevant to our case, the constant communication ensured both of us were getting the most accurate information from the family.”
