Subphase 3 of home modification process protocol.

Intervention planning phaseSubphase 3

DescriptionDevelop collaborative goal(s) to identify the detailed PET design requirement for the home modification

Key questionsIs the person(s) goal(s) for the modification to
restore their occupational performance/participation?
maintain their occupational performance/participation?
develop their skills or role to perform or participate in a new occupation?
What are the detailed PET design requirements for achieving the collaborative goals?
Should a home modification approach be taken?

ActionsIdentify, with the person(s), if the goals for the home modification are
restoring their occupational performance/participation?
maintaining their occupational performance/participation?
developing their skills or role to perform or participate in a new occupation?
Identify, with the person(s), how the abovementioned approach will impact on the evaluation phases
Identify the specific “person factors/body functions” design requirements
Identify the specific “environmental” design requirements
Identify the specific “task” design requirements
Identify any occupations(s) that cannot be addressed through an occupation-focused home modification

OutcomesPerson(s) has collaborated on the goals of the home modification
Goals for home modification documented
PET design requirements to achieve the goal(s) documented
Reablement, rehabilitation, and/or training requirements following the completion of the home modification documented
