ALS Roundtable TeleSeries: Home Modifications for Accessibility and Safety
Saturday, October 23, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Zoom Online Meeting
Adapting a living environment to meet the changing needs of ALS will become a necessity as the disease progresses. However, with ALS, typical structural home modifications are often not appropriate. The cost, time, and emotional upheaval of having structural modifications done to the home are barriers that most families face. Assistive technology devices can be used in lieu of structural changes. Environmental modifications can help keep a person safe and help people retain independence for as long as possible. Home modifications can also lower a caregivers risk for injury by making tasks such as assisting with transferring and repositioning less physically taxing. This presentation will discuss home accommodation and modifications specific to those with temporary and/or changing needs and will focus on accommodations and safety.
