Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy for Home Health

Home health occupational therapy (OT) helps support the well-being and independence of individuals within the comfort of their homes. At Compassus, our home health occupational therapists are here to help you if you are eligible for home health and have an illness, injury or condition that makes it difficult to do daily activities such as getting out of bed.

Benefits of Occupational Therapy

One of its primary advantages of occupational therapy is the personalized care approach our team take in the place where you or a loved one calls home. Our OTs conduct thorough assessments, considering not only the physical aspects but also the individual’s daily routines, lifestyle, and specific challenges encountered in their home setting. The team routinely assess the living environment and suggest changes that can help enhance safety and accessibility. 

Another benefit is our focus on activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) including dressing, grooming, cooking, and managing medications. By tailoring interventions to address these routine tasks, Compassus OTs help empower individuals to regain or maintain their independence, fostering a sense of accomplishment and confidence.

Family & Caregiver Engagement

Our team helps educate and train those providing care, ensuring a collaborative approach to the individual’s recovery. This not only helps enhance the effectiveness of therapy but also empowers the entire support system.

How OT helps improve quality of life

Our goal is to improve the overall quality of life for individuals receiving care at home. By addressing both physical and non-physical aspects of well-being, our team can help contribute to the holistic health of our patients and their loved ones, allowing them to lead fulfilling and independent lives.
