Home and Community-Based Therapy
Rainbow’s Home and Community Therapy is comprised of a team of therapists (physical, occupational, speech, mental health and recreational), registered dieticians and nurses who give expert treatment where people are most comfortable, in their own homes or communities. This care can help to progress or maintain the success achieved after leaving a residential setting, hospital, inpatient rehabilitation setting or when deemed appropriate.
Rainbow provides therapists to meet a school district’s needs for full-time, part-time or temporary physical, occupational or speech therapy staffing.
Evaluations and Treatment
When you return to home, Rainbow therapists provide clinical evaluations, develop care plans, and provide treatment to ensure that you continue to progress in your living environment.
Attendant Care Assessments
This specialty evaluations is performed by an Occupational Therapist (OT) to assist in determining attendant care needs within your home and community. The OT will assess a client’s need for assistance in multiple domains.
Functional Home Assessment
This is a specialty evaluation performed by an OT. The OT will provide a thorough assessment of a home environment and make recommendations for potential home modifications and equipment.

Rainbow therapists can visit a worksite to provide treatment/training and make recommendations for modifications to the jobsite to maximize the ability to function in the work environment.
When a client is ready to participate in an on-the-road driving assessment, a specialty trained Rainbow OT can provide a pre-driving evaluation which can assist in determining depth perception, visual perception, cervical and limb range of motion, reaction time, safety awareness, and the overall ability to move towards on-the-road training with a certified driving re specialist.
