Occupational Therapists, sometimes called OTs help people improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments. They help the elderly lead more productive, active, and independent lives using a variety of methods and techniques, so they can sustain themselves and also contribute to the wider community. OTs perform a complex and multifaceted assessment at the start of care, create customized treatment plans, follow through on them, and do an evaluation at the end to measure the established goals.
Some of the tasks involve:
Fine Motor Skills Training
Selection and Training of Adaptive Equipment Use
Energy Conservation Techniques
Improve Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
Home Modifications for Safety
Fall Prevention Programs
Our therapist will coordinate and work with any and all other disciplines involved in ones treatment plan.
