disagree  Sven Petersson: An unlucky guess; it's not somebody who rehabilitates the challenged, but somebody who assesses the need for adaption of the home and if the challenged person really needs a grant for the adaption.

  -> ahh yes, I see it now!

neutral  Anna Herbst: This could be another possible answer as the rehabilitation worker would be involved in the process at an early stage. See http://www.boverket.se/Vagledningar/Bostadsanpassningsbidrag... (Thanks, Norskpro!)

disagree  Anna Herbst: To quote you: "An unlucky guess". A social care assessor is involved in training and assessment. https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk/advice/planning... PS. Your Ref. points to an Error 404 page.

  -> The page was live when the reference was posted. A UK "social care assessor" is not normally actively involved in training.

neutral  Sven Petersson: The explanation is perfect, but the proffered translation yields NIL Google hits. In the UK they are called "Social Care Assessors". I don't know what they are called in other English speaking countries.

home modification coordinator


Explanation:
Alternatively, one might consider "home evaluator," but which term one selects depends on context that would be best known by the question poster. See link below for difference between two job titles, which ought to serve as a guide in selecting the term to go with.
