“Accessible homes in Brazil have a talented champion, in the work of architect Juliana Santana. The shower wall-recess is an elegant solution to the problem of getting both a grab-bar and a fold-up seat on the same wall. So many great details here – the tilted mirror over the vanity is another favorite of mine!”- The Accessible Home
Occupational Therapy helps people of all ages who have suffered an illness, injury or some form of debilitation relearn the skills of daily living. It is often OTs who work in the field, make in-home assessments and recommend home improvements. In an era where consumers want to increasingly be empowered and maximize life’s potential, more and more people are recognizing the value of occupational therapy and as a result the field is expected to grow significantly over the coming years.
