Basic Skills Re-Education with Occupational Therapy
Experiencing a long time of limited movement can hinder someone from performing their daily activities like they used to. Various factors such as injury or a health condition can also affect this ability.
Fortunately, providers of home health services in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania are everywhere, like us, providing occupational therapy to help re-educate patients when it comes to basic life skills.
Home health care provides occupational therapy services to aid their client’s life in healing. Occupational therapists can help assess and create a treatment plan that is beneficial for the patient. This includes creating changes in the patient’s home and/or work environment and recommending adaptations to fit the patient’s needs and improve independence.
Of course, basic life skills refer to someone’s abilities to make cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal decisions. Having an occupational therapist re-educate the patient with said skills is imperative to their healing despite injury or health condition. It is the main goal of the OT to help the individual live life independently with as few restrictions as possible.
Re-education to basic life skills for home and work/school can be very helpful for the patient. Keep in mind that the occupational therapist can provide the patient with more accessible means for them to perform various chores/activities without difficulty.
