What is home-based occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy teaches how to do things many of us take for granted, like toilet hygiene, dressing, eating unassisted, and socializing. People of all ages receive occupational therapy to help them participate in the activities of daily life.
Home-based therapy helps to maximize a person’s activity level in their own home. Occupational therapists take into account the home layout and equipment requirements when creating a personalized plan for care.
Do I need an occupational therapist?
- Are you looking to regain or maintain a level of independence that will allow you to age in place for as long as possible?
- Do you find yourself socializing less with family, friends and participating less in the community?
- Has it become difficult to carry out your daily routine, mobilize around your home or the community, bathe, groom, dress, cook, self-feed or complete toilet hygiene?
- Are you recovering from surgery or other various medical conditions, where you need to regain important life supporting skills?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you would benefit from occupational therapy,
