Home occupational therapy is a rehabilitative service for people with mental, physical, developmental or emotional impairments. Occupational Therapy restores or maintains your ability to perform tasks used in daily living, often through developing ways to modify or adapt activities. It helps to solve the problems that interfere with your ability to do the things that are important to you and can also prevent future problems from occurring.
After hospitalization or a recent surgery, our occupational therapists can help you regain your self-care skills with rehabilitative treatment in your home. Our therapists act as a guide, teaching patients how to regain their strength and independence through exercise programs, personal care and daily activity task modification, including energy conservation techniques.
