Home Safety Self Assessment Tool (HSSAT) 4.0 is available now
This was made possible through the funding by the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York. There is an article about HSSAT in Today’s Geriatric Medicine, November/December 2013. The psychometrics (reliability, validity, and responsiveness to change) was established and the results can be found in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy November/December 2014.
“I wanted to take a moment and thank you for not only putting this incredible tool together, but for making it available free of charge. I will be doing everything I can to get this information into the hands of seniors and their families. Thank you to you and the entire team for their time, energy and commitment to seniors!” D.
