Occupational Therapy Aged Care
Occupational therapy (OT) can assist seniors to regain their confidence, abilities and self-reliance after ill health or an injury, or if they have a disability. As people age, they can find it increasingly harder to maintain their independence and to continue enjoying the activities they once did. Occupational therapy can provide much-needed value and assistance.
The goal of OT is to get the best fit between the you as the person, the activity and the environment that you perform that activity.
Some of the health conditions that a Physio Inq Aged Care Occupational Therapist can help with include arthritic conditions, stroke, Parkinson’s and dementia.
Our Occupational Therapy Aged Care services are detailed in the assessment and long-term management of older people.
Whether the assessments are homes, hospitals, aged care facilities, retirement villages or nursing homes, our Occupational Therapists can come directly to where ever you want them.
