Your Community Health Nurse, Shelby Ross, can give you a referral for an Occupational Therapist assessment in your home, which will determine what you need to make your home safer! For example, if you have limited mobility, you could receive a referral for getting grab bars installed in your home. Your Community Health Nurse can also provide a referral for an Environmental Health Officer home inspection.
