Liz Ainsworth is an Occupational Therapist who works with people of all ages and abilities who need to make changes to their home design or who need a newly designed solution.
She collaborates with architects, building designers and builders to ensure the needs of the person with a health condition or a disability are incorporated at plan stage or as a home modification.
She visits the person needing changes to their home environment to do an interview and observes how they are managing in their existing home, and undertakes a process of measurement to ensure the fit of the person, their carer, and their equipment with the proposed environment.
She has a broad knowledge of design options and products; and can recommend different ways of doing activities or assess for alternative equipment to suit the need of the person.
