Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy helps seniors in their homes which may include: assisted living facilities, nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, adult day care centers and community senior centers to assesses the seniors ability to perform their daily “occupations” or activities. At Patients Best Choice Home Health we begin with an evaluation to determine what difficulties a senior may be having that interferes with their independence. We work with seniors with arthritis to protect the joints and conserve energy. We also help with limited range-of-motion to do stretching exercises and use adaptive equipment. We assist seniors with low vision to adapt to their environment to avoid glare and increase color contrast. Seniors with memory impairment can be helped by doing things such as organizing drawers and labeling cabinets.
