Capitalizing on Home Modifications and the 2015 AOTA Conference

Universal/accessible design of the home from an occupational therapy and a construction perspective. This blog is part of a quest for cool, convenient, functional design that makes life safer, easier, and as maintenance-free as possible. It's about the lifestyle.
So who is planning on going to the 2015 AOTA conference in Nashville?

 I went to the AOTA conference last year in Baltimore and met many great OT's who had their own home modification businesses.  Unfortunately I can't make it out to the conference until Saturday, April 18th but there are some wonderful sessions on the agenda for Saturday, see below.

I have a successful home modification business in Michigan and would like to support other OT's in the home mod field as well as continue to grow my business. So all you home mod. OT's with home modification businesses or aspiring home modification businesses or who have jobs doing home modifications let's meet to discuss what we as OT's can do to lead the home modification field, what works/doesn't work for marketing services, where the money is for home modifications and to discuss ways to make money and grow our businesses.

It is time for OT to take over the home modification world.  For anyone who is interested there will be a Home Modification for Business for Occupational Therapists meeting on Saturday at 5:30 pm after the last AOTA session for home mods, dinner will be an option.  Please plan on coming, we are all in this together.

I sure wish I could go, but I just can't make it work. Will any of the sessions be recorded so that members can view them after the conference?

Yes, I'm hoping to record it and then share it with people who are interested.:-)

I will definitely be interested.
