ALS Roundtable Teleseries: Home Modifications for Accessibility and Safety
Presented by Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America

Adapting a living environment to meet the changing needs of ALS will become a necessity as the disease progresses. However, with ALS, typical structural home modifications are often not appropriate. The cost, time, and emotional upheaval of having structural modifications done to the home are barrier that most families face. Assistive technology devices can be used in lieu of structural changes. Environmental modifications can help keep a person safe and help people retain independence for as long as possible. Home modifications can also lower a caregiver’s risk for injury by making tasks such as assisting with transferring and repositioning less physically taxing. This presentation will discuss home accommodation and modifications specific to those with temporary and/or changing needs and will focus on accommodations and safety.

Speaker Alisa Brownlee, ATP, CLIPP, CAPS, WSP is the Manager of Assistive Technology Services for the ALS Association, Greater Philadelphia Chapter and is also an Assistive Technology Consultant to the National ALS Association. She has been in the field of assistive technology for over 25 years. Alisa speaks, blogs, writes articles and uses social media to increase awareness of ALS and the use of assistive technology. Her specialty areas are communication, computer access, electronic aids for daily living and home modifications. She is a strong advocate for patient rights with elected officials, insurance companies, and other healthcare providers.

Following the presentation, our speaker & members from our Care Services team will be available for a Q&A session with attendees. This virtual event is free of charge.
