Have you ever heard of an occupational therapist? They’re people who help people with disabilities or injuries do everyday tasks, like getting dressed or cooking. Sabrina McCarley is an occupational therapist who uses a tool called the Caregiver Smart Solutions Core Kit to help her clients. It helps her identify things in their home that might not be safe and gives her ideas for how to fix them. Occupational therapists like Sabrina can use the Core Kit to create a plan to help their clients live independently and safely in their homes.
Hello everyone, my name is Ryan Herd and I am the founder of Caregiver Smart Solutions. Today, I wanted to introduce you to Sabrena McCarley, an occupational therapist who has used our Caregiver Smart Solutions Core Kit to help her clients. I wanted to find out more about Sabrina’s background and how she thinks occupational therapists can use our tool as a resource to assist their clients.
Certified Living in Place
Sabrina has a background in occupational therapy and has specialized training in the post-acute care setting. She has a passion for working with the geriatric population and has her CLIP (Certified Living in Place) certification, which focuses on providing standardized home assessments and improving overall facility outcomes. Sabrina believes that the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for non-traditional rehab approaches and that the CLIP certification can help bring a standardized approach to home assessments.
looking beyond the traditional interdisciplinary team in rehab
One of the key things that Sabrina emphasized was the importance of looking beyond the traditional interdisciplinary team in rehab and considering all of the individuals who may interact with a client in their home setting. This could include interior designers, builders, home inspectors, handymen, or even landscapers. By considering all of these different factors, occupational therapists can create a more comprehensive plan to help their clients live independently and safely in their homes.
Caregiver Smart Solutions Core Kit
Sabrina also discussed the importance of using tools like the Caregiver Smart Solutions Core Kit as a resource for occupational therapists. The Core Kit provides a comprehensive home assessment tool that can help therapists identify potential safety hazards and areas for improvement in their client’s homes. It also includes resources and solutions for addressing these issues, which can help therapists create a more comprehensive plan for their clients.
Overall, it was great to hear from Sabrina and learn more about how she uses the Caregiver Smart Solutions Core Kit as a resource for her clients. If you’re an occupational therapist looking for a comprehensive home assessment tool, I highly recommend checking out the Caregiver Smart Solutions Core Kit. It can provide valuable insights and solutions for helping your clients maintain independence and live safely in their homes.
