ACCESS MATCH - OT Home Assessment Tool

ACCESS MATCH- OT Home Assessment Tool s a web-based assessment tool for registered occupational therapists who have been screened for assessor eligibility and trained in the ACCESS MATCH Home Assessment Tool. 




An occupational therapist is a regulated health professional who is uniquely positioned to conduct home assessments. With a university degree (now a Masters program in most provinces) under a department of rehabilitative medicine and with practicing knowledge of progressive disease, disability, and age-related changes, an occupational therapist understands the physical, psychological, cognitive impact that these conditions have on a person, their tasks of daily living, and their environment. Using a person, environment, (PEO) occupational therapy model of practice, an occupational therapist is the health professional best suited to conduct a home assessment.
