Having to experience a life-changing illness or injury often means having to re-learn daily activities. Due to changes in the body and mind, patients need to accept their limitations and find ways to perform daily tasks without discomfort. One way to achieve this goal is by working with a reliable caregiver, such as an occupational therapist (OT).
Regaining the skills when you have had a significant body part of yours injured can pose a very big challenge, indeed. Progressive Health, Inc.’s occupational therapists will be there for you every step of the way, offering you insights on how to cope with your current limitations while doing their best to reorient you to the usual home and work setting.
Aside from providing quality home health care in Pennsylvania, our agency offers professional occupational therapy to help you take control over your life despite limitations. This means having to undergo training to re-learn basic life skills, body mechanics, mobility enhancement, muscle control restoration and management, and so much more.
Your needs will be examined during your initial appointment with us. Our OT may visit your house or business to observe what you do and what modifications should be done. Our OTs may also advise you to relocate furniture or obtain an assistive device such as a cane or grabber. During the whole therapy, you will be taught how to handle your daily activities more effectively with the utilization of these assistive devices and more.
If you require extra help at home while you or your loved one is receiving occupational therapy, our home health aide is always happy to accommodate your needs.
