Program Overview

We believe strongly in teaching and guiding therapy professionals to develop home modification and safety businesses that are ethical and uphold professional standards. It is imperative to understand what is covered by Medicare Part B as well as other insurances prior to charging client's privately. Of course, there are ways to establish and run a home modification and safety business to only be private pay, but you have to know the rules and regulations to make sure you are doing what is right for the client and also reducing your risks as a therapist/business. Therapists should also provide evidence based assessments and recommendations as supported by the best available evidence. Our programs are designed to be informed and practical. Allowing the therapist to apply the information and skills directly into their practice.
