Occupational Therapy at Home

 Occupational Therapy at Home

Occupational therapy is beneficial for patients of all ages. However, it is especially helpful to the geriatric population that faces physical, mental, or psychological challenges in their daily life. Therapists work with both the senior and their caregivers to devise a short/long-term plan that works for everyone and allows all those involved to reach their own individual goals.

What can Occupational Therapy Include?

  • Help you to regain the physical skills needed to use an arm/hand that was affected by a stroke or brain injury.
  • Teaching adaptive ways to get washed, dressed and perform homemaking activities.
  • Teaching energy conservation techniques so that an individual can continue to perform what they need to do.
  • Developing strategies to allow individuals to increase their independence in everyday tasks.
  • Teaching you the use of adaptive devices that will allow to increased safety and independence
