Occupational Therapy Services

Occupational Therapy is important for keeping your loved one independent and healthy. If your family member is in need of some extra help at home, this service may be for you. 

What Is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is a type of treatment that helps individuals improve their daily activities, such as self-care. This improves crucial skills which will allow your loved one to live independently for longer.

This can include things like:

  • An evaluation of your loved one’s individual needs
  • Customized care plans
  • Training on personal hygiene
  • Hand and arm strengthening exercises
  • Training on any equipment needed at home (e.g. modifying utensils, using adaptive kitchen appliances)

Why Is Occupational Therapy Important?

When seniors suffer from a loss or decline in strength, they are often at risk of losing independence. Occupational Therapy for seniors can help them recover from illness, injury, surgery, or declining health. This service can help them to manage activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing, bathing, and getting in and out of bed. 

Occupational therapy can improve your loved one’s overall health and physical ability, which can decrease the risk of having to go into a nursing home. This is the goal of this important treatment.

Another thing to consider is pain management. If your loved one has chronic pain, occupational therapy may be able to help them manage the pain and therefore continue living independently at home.
