Home Health Occupational Therapy in Akron Ohio
In-Home Health OT for Seniors
Seniors often need support in accomplishing the daily activities of living at home, especially when cognitive function is impaired, after a surgery or injury, or if they have experienced a loss of mobility. While physical therapists will help restore function and strength to the body, in home occupational therapy may be recommended after or alongside a physical therapy regimen. Home health OT helps in instances where a senior may need to learn or re-learn tasks like bathing and dressing, cooking or cleaning, or moving about their home.
