The Home Usability Plan is a form that can be completed in your home with a Center for Independent Living (CIL) specialist or on your own. For the most benefit, we recommend working with your local CIL to discuss the Home Usability Plan. The plan can help you outline the steps you need to take to make progress on your home usability goals and how to best work with the Home Usability Network.
If you decide to work with a CIL specialist, it may be helpful to arrange an in-home visit to discuss your usability issues, goals, and solutions. A home visit allows for a more in depth conversation about your home usability problems. Be sure to take detailed notes and describe your experiences the best that you can. If you are willing, photos can be very helpful.
The Home Usability Plan will help you:
- Identify your usability goals
- Identify personal resources available
- Identify possible barriers you may face
- Identify the members of the HUN that can help
- Establish timelines for achieving your goals
- Designate tasks and set deadlines
- Make it happen!
