Providing Superior In-Home Occupational Therapy Services
in El Paso
Desierto Home Healthcare’s occupational therapy department works closely with both patients and caregivers to help each patient become as independent and active as their condition will allow. Our occupational therapists follow the prescribing physician’s directives to assess the patient’s condition as well as to create and implement a comprehensive occupational treatment plan.
Our in-home occupational therapy program is a client-focused process that not only administers the proper treatment and therapy but also focuses on transforming the home into an environment that promotes the highest level of health and recovery.
Desierto Home Healthcare’s occupational therapists assist clients who have a range of physical, developmental, social, or emotional challenges that create obstacles in daily life. An occupational therapist can instruct patients on how to use rehabilitation equipment or techniques in order to improve their ability to participate in daily activities such as self-care, cooking, eating, and cleaning.
Who Can Benefit From In-Home Occupational Therapy
Patients who are suffering from a wide range of conditions and injuries can benefit from occupational therapy. People of all ages can benefit, from children with disabilities to adults who are recovering from injury. Occupational therapy may benefit you if:
- Routine home activities have become difficult following a recent stroke, slip and fall, or major surgery.
- Your home requires adaptation for both safety and recovery.
- Instruction is needed to learn how to use assistive devices in your home.
- You have an ongoing medical condition that affects strength and/or motor skills such as arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, or Multiple Sclerosis.
- You have a recent diagnosis of a mental illness, a stress-related disorder, or other emotional disturbance.
In-Home Occupational Therapy
When it comes to in-home occupational therapy, the patient’s home will be transformed in order for it to be as safe as possible. Desierto Home Healthcare assures our clients the transformed environment will promote recovery and not sabotage our therapy efforts. Many injuries are caused by slip and fall accidents. In order to reduce the possibility of slip and falls, our team will conduct a thorough environmental assessment of your home. Our goal is to take a look at the daily tasks within the home and evaluate how to improve these processes.
