What is In-Home Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy works towards getting patients to accomplish activities of daily living.
These activities include:
- Meal Prepping
- Eating & Drinking
More often than not, this deals with cognitive work and motor control skills that can be lost due to a neurological issue or a rehabilitation or hospital stay. In the occupational therapy sessions, specialists also educate patients on energy conservation, which will help people know when to take breaks and when not to, and how to breathe when completing tasks. In the case the problem is work related, possibly workers compensation, the goal is to get our patients back to a point where they can replicate the functions needed to perform their daily tasks on the job.
