Gray Matters Alliance is a group of trained specialists, Occupational Therapists (OTR/L) and Assistants (COTA/L), devoted to helping you improve the safety of your loved one’s independent living environment.

We work with seniors and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and communities to foster living independently, safely.

We educate you and your family members about the services, equipment, technology, and community resources available to help your loved one remain independent at home as safely as possible.

Our Home Safety Assessment Process

The Gray Matters Alliance home safety assessment process starts with an initial, no-cost, screening phone call to review your current situation.

From there, we schedule an in-home safety assessment appointment.

1

Assess Your Loved One’s Home and Situation

First, our trained Occupational Therapist assesses your loved one’s medical history, cognitive abilities, mobility, strength, and balance. Then we assess your loved one’s entire home. We review the inside, outside, and all entrances and exits. Room by room we help uncover safety issues, hazards, required modifications, and potential equipment that will be needed

2

Report and Review Our Safety Assessment

We provide you with a written assessment, including recommendations for education, equipment, and resources to improve your loved one’s safety and independence in their home. We review this information and our recommendations with family members, guardians, and caregivers.

3

Final Summary and Approval

Once the recommended improvements are made, Gray Matters Alliance gives you a final summary report to ensure all suggested recommendations are in place and your loved one’s needs are met.
