 "The Hoarding Specialist helps me to let go of items that I don't really need and organize my belongings, making it easier to find what I am looking for.  It has made my home safer and it's now a nicer place to live.  My friends, family and workers now enjoy coming to my home to visit."  Sandra S.

 In 2013, an Occupational Therapist completed Home Safety Assessments in tenants apartments. The goal was to support the tenants in achieving their independence.  AIS responded to the physical safety needs of tenants.  In  recent months a number of accessibility features were installed in the AIS buildings such as automatic door openers, accessible toilets, improved corridor lighting, non-slip tub surfaces and visual warning strips on the stairs.
