About Us

Unique Combined Expertise of Occupational Therapist and Environmental Modifications Project Manager
Access Capabilities offers the unique interactive guidance of a registered Occupational Therapist (OT) with a certified Environmental Modifications Project Manager (PM). Our distinctive combination of OT and PM experience allows us to manage the needs of both the modifications and the patient. Given the trauma, health and urgency issues involved in most home modification cases, Access Capabilities provides high-level consideration to generating timely and efficient resolutions.
