Home Independence Program: A community-based Assess & Restore program for frail seniors

Presenters: Aruna Mitra & Archana Arun

Frail seniors are at higher risk of falls, hospital re-admission and admission into a long-term care home. An 8-week home-based restorative rehabilitation program was developed based on Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Assess & Restore Guideline.  This program is led by occupational therapists and is delivered by personal support workers (PSWs) in the community. 

This webinar will cover the Home Independence Program structure, eligibility criteria, program oversight, best practice-based communication protocols, client-centred goal setting, PSW training workshop content and approach, evaluation outcomes including resource utilization, and patient feedback. Strategies to overcome program challenges will also be addressed.


After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Understand strategies for implementing Assess and Restore programming in home care setting
  2. Recognize how and why to integrate PSWs into functional programming delivered in the home setting
  3. Gain insight into the program challenges and opportunities to consider when implementing similar programming in your own setting.
