In particular, we explore the roles and perspectives of each stakeholder in the home modification process, and we present a range of strategies to assist occupational therapists to achieve effective and positive service delivery outcomes. Additionally, we review the current legislative environment and the funding schemes that facilitate service delivery. We examine, in detail, the home modification process, including a review of approaches to evaluating, measuring, and drawing the environment; identifying and evaluating interventions; applying design standards; and reporting and legal issues.
