Terri Lemere has been a practicing Occupational Therapist for 23 years. She has vast experience working in a variety of settings – skilled nursing facilities, inpatient rehab, outpatient, hospital, assisted living facilities, and her favorite setting – home health. Terri has also been a provider of environmental assessments with Maryland’s Medicaid Waiver program for the last 19 years.
Terri earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology in 1991 from The University of South Carolina, and her Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy in 1996 from Towson University. She chose to take the geriatric track, focusing on OT with the older adult.
Terri went on to earn her Executive Certificate in Home Modification from USC Leonard Davis, School of Gerontology in 2020. She also became a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) in 2020. Terri is a member of the National Home Modification Therapy Alliance, the American Occupational Therapy Association and NBCOT (National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy).
Terri strongly believes that, when possible, providing Occupational Therapy in a client’s home is the ideal place to help that person flourish and function as independently and safely as possible.
Terri decided to embark on a new journey with her aging-in-place and home modifications knowledge and experience, and founded Healthy Home Living Solutions, LLC. She strongly believes that there are so many people who aren’t aware of the potential and possibilities of aging in their own homes, as opposed to continuing to live in an environment that may not meet their needs, resulting in the necessity of seeking a higher level of care.
Terri’s goal with Healthy Home Living Solutions, LLC is to provide a service to her clients that will facilitate the safest environment, your home, in order to continue living independently and successfully.
Terri lives in Middletown, Maryland (Frederick County) with her husband, two college-aged sons, and Chesapeake Bay Retriever. She is half of the duo, Housewives of Frederick County – a hyperlocal Frederick County blog that has become a valuable resource to the Frederick community.
