Why Occupational Therapy?

By definition, home health patients are recovering from an injury, illness, or surgery.  So, it is common for a patient in this situation to lose some of the control they once had over their bodies.  Occupational therapy is a remarkable remedy to this problem.  Because personal independence is vital to a person’s health and happiness, Medicare requires all home health providers to offer occupational therapy. Through this service, our patients can regain their independence and live their highest quality of life.

About Aspire Home Health and Hospice

Occupational Therapy

At Aspire, our goal is to help our patients be as happy and healthy as possible.  For many patients, this means helping them reclaim their independence and get to the point of performing daily tasks while needing as little outside help as possible.

Occupational therapy is a very effective method of helping recovering patients regain their independence.  This therapy treats injured, ill, or disabled patients through the therapeutic use of everyday activities.  Through these activities, patients can recover, develop, improve, and maintain the skills they need for independent living and working.

The activities a patient will practice under occupational therapy will vary from patient to patient.  So, an occupational therapist will work with their patient to determine which actions will most benefit them according to their goals, needs, and lifestyle.  The objectives of these actions are to improve the patient’s balance, dexterity, memory, safety, personal care, and relaxation.  So, some of the activities a patient might perform are origami, sewing, tossing a ball, writing, washing, and cooking.
