Assessment

Activities of Daily Living Assessment

Makin Life Easier carries out functional assessments to determine a client’s level of ability and is then able to advise on how to maximise a client’s functional ability and promote their level of independence. Usually this will involve recommendations for disability aids or adaptations or for specialist treatment or rehabilitation. A comprehensive report is provided to all clients outlining their needs and how best these can be met.
