Occupational therapy (OT) for home health patients helps individuals identify and work on activities of daily living without the inconvenience or risk of traveling to a separate location. Occupational therapists help home health patients regain the ability to take care of themselves, including activities like dressing, bathing, grooming, and meal preparation. They may also work on fine motor skills, cognitive functioning, and physical strength to restore the patient’s overall quality of life. Our occupational therapists can also provide support and guidance to caregivers and family members. Occupational therapy for home health patients helps individuals get back on their feet and develop the skills needed for independent living. It can also help individuals adjust to changes in their lives due to illness or disability.
Through personalized and engaging activities, Traditions Health helps home health patients maintain independence and live healthier lives.
Because no two patients face the same challenges, our occupational health therapists create individualized programs to help each person reach their highest level of functioning and independence during home health treatment. These services might include:
