Planning Housing Adaptations to meet Clinical Functional Needs

Part 1 : Assessing Client and Environment

  • Location: Hamilton
  • Venue: TBC
  • Date: February 2013
  • Cost: TBC
  • Presenter: Christine Higgins NZROT

Christine is an NZ trained OT with over 30 years work experience in both NZ and the UK. She has worked part time as a Community OT for the past 15 years, where housing modifications are an acknowledged area of her expertise.

This one day course is intended for those new to prescribing home adaptations, or those wishing to improve their skills in this area.

It is designed to be a perquisite for subsequent courses which will focus on measuring the existing environment, planning the adaptation and common environmental solutions.

Occupational Therapists attending this course will:

  • Be able to describe the common functional consequences of major disabling conditions most likely to require home adaptations
  • Develop key report writing skills for funding applications
  • Reflect on the main areas to assess a typical home environment
  • Be introduced to basic building terminology as it relates to home adaptations

To lodge your advance expression of interest in this course, please email Christinehigg@gmail.com.

Include your full name, phone numbers and describe your level of experience in this field (50 word max).



"While it took some time to focus in on what area I wanted in New Zealand, once locked into this process eNZed Paramedical proved to be what I had hoped for; communicative, highly efficient and giving objective advice—added to this was a very human side that both calmed me prior to interview but looked out for my well being once contractual details were being discussed. I would recommend them to anyone who seeks to do what I have achieved, thankfully, with their help."

— Pat, Occupational Therapist from England, UK
