Taking into consideration the person’s medical and social history to identifying needs and support requirements, a Functional Skills Assessment can assist through:
- Training and education in skills to assist with improving daily living skills.
- Learn about equipment and services that may assist with your daily activities.
- Finding ways to improve mobility for increased independence and confidence to enable you to fully participate in your daily routines.
- Providing evidence to Funding organisations to advocate for supports as identified during assessment.
