            Abstract

            Occupational home visits for older adults are a standard part of the discharge process within the NHS. However, there is limited research on the efficacy of this practice (Atwal et al 2012) or on alternative approaches, including the use of technology, for carrying out this intervention more effectively. Home visits typically involve a short visit with the patient to their home to assess their ability to perform usual everyday tasks. Consequently, the practitioner proposes recommendations for adaptations to the patient’s home and for the provision of specialist assistive equipment such as bed hoists, support rails, shower seats and grab rails and so forth.
