Occupational therapy for seniors is specifically designed to help improve the quality of life for senior citizens in a variety of ways by helping them incorporate meaningful activities into their daily lives. At Premier Home Health Care Services, Inc., we offer occupational rehabilitation services for these clients in the comfort of their own homes.

Our expertly-trained therapists can help seniors with disabilities learn how to manage their day-to-day activities and teach them tactics such as:

  • Ways to protect their joints
  • How to use adaptive equipment
  • How to put on and remove a prosthesis
  • If poor vision is an issue, how to avoid glare and increase color contrast
  • Ways to enhance memory as well as organizational tips
  • How to work around functional limitations during activities of daily living

How Does Occupational Rehabilitation Differ from Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy helps clients regain strength and functional capabilities after a surgery, illness, or injury. Occupational therapy is designed to help clients regain independence with activities of daily living that include dressing, bathing, and meal preparation. Our occupational therapists assess and adapt the home for the client’s safety, educate caregivers, and provide functional limitation solutions which maximize independence.

Benefits of Occupational Therapy

  • Environment
  • Health
  • Life transitions
  • Cognitive and memory faculties
