If you are suffering from a physical, mental, developmental or emotional disability that affects your ability to function in daily life, you may want to consider occupational therapy. Occupational therapy helps those with difficulty performing everyday activities by improving their motor skills, visual-perceptual skills, cognitive skills, and sensory-processing deficits. This therapy can help you do things like eat without assistance, participate in leisure or social activities, bathe and dress on their own, work, do household chores and similar activities. People of all ages can benefit from occupational therapy.
Are you in need of occupational therapy but do not want to leave home? If so, you may still access specialized interventions with occupational therapy at home.
What to expect from occupational therapy at home?
Occupational therapists must be registered with the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia to legally practise in the province. When you choose to have occupational therapy at home, you can expect the same level of service you would receive in a hospital or clinic—safe, ethical and quality care.
There will be functional assessments to determine the course of action that must be taken. During these assessments, the therapist may evaluate movements and strength, or ability to focus and remember instructions. If one of the aims of therapy is to acquire a job, you may be asked to practise skills that may be needed for selected jobs.
