Home Occupational Therapist

Occupational Therapist in the Home

With an occupational therapist, a patient can benefit from the following:

  • Individualized evaluation to determine goals
  • Customized plan designed to improve performance of daily activities
  • Recommendations for adaptive equipment and training
  • Guidance for family members and caregivers
  • Evaluations on a periodic basis to ensure goals are being met

If your loved one qualifies for home health care and occupational therapy, you can expect a few things with the professional assigned to your case. Overall, practitioners offer strategies for their patients to manage daily activities while at the same time cutting back on the risk of injury or further decline. This is often a give and take process that will ultimately determine the correct fit between the abilities of the patient, the home environment, and the limitations of the illness or injury. Their main goal is to improve efficiency and maximize positive outcomes for patients.
