What People Say About Silver SpacesTM Home Assessment

I really appreciated the tool, and it was such a great find for my specific classwork. I did work for a year as a geriatric care manager and I was able to look at it from that angle, in addition to being a student and former graphic designer.

I did find it a useful tool and did share it with my classmates as a very concise and well put together way to be able to audit a home.

I think it would be very valuable to both OT/PT students and also to ANY geriatric care manager. So many people don’t know a lot about care managers and a wonderful place for you to also market it!

“Dr. Bjerke has created a comprehensive home assessment tool that consumers and professionals can use to determine the pros and cons of the homes where people are living. It pinpoints what improvements would make the home safer and more accessible. The report is a good conversation starter between family members, occupational therapists, physical therapists, builders, and contractors.”

“I’ve used so many home audits.  This is superior in every way. I used this for a clinical evaluation and it was outstanding.”

Myra N., B.S., MPT, DPT, Olympia, WA

“As a prospective assessment for aging-in-place, this “checks all the boxes!”  It is easy to use and the report provided outstanding, detailed recommendations.  Thank you for creating this.”

Sandy L., B.S., MOT, OTD, MPH, Oklahoma City, OK

“I like the report that was printed out when I completed the assessment.  This is easy to use and looks extremely professional, especially with the logo that prints at the top.  I also like that the master bath recommendations include basic height from the floor measurements.  And having images of the zero threshold, lighting and plumbing is genius!  Makes moving through all the rooms so much easier.”

Maxine M, OT, Baltimore, MD

“I used the Silver Spaces to perform a safety assessment in my own home.  I found the platform to be very user friendly and intuitive.  I appreciated the easy-to-follow instructional videos and that based on your answers, suggestions for solutions automatically populated and were provided in the final report.  I also like that you are able to take photos and save them to the assessment so that you can easily recall the issue and refer to them when discussing potential modifications.  Thank you for making this tool easily available and affordable to the public.”
