Why At-Home Occupational Therapy Is So Important , Kalispell, Montana

Occupational therapy is designed to maximize a person’s motor skills, independence, and overall quality of life. While many people visit an occupational therapist at a nearby medical facility, there are times when this therapy needs to be done at home. The experts from Flathead Choice Home Health Agency in Kalispell, MT, provides occupational therapy services to patients who are recovering from medical conditions that make it difficult to be independent.

When your loved one is recovering from an injury, illness, or stroke, they may have trouble navigating daily life. They may struggle to cook, bathe, or clean the house. Due to limited mobility, they can’t safely operate a vehicle and drive to a nearby occupational therapist. Home health agencies ensure your loved one will get the care they need in the comfort and privacy of home.

occupational therapy Kalispell MTYour loved one’s occupational therapist will visit their home as often as necessary. The therapist will help them practice exercises that improve coordination, motor skills, and self-regulation. The more often your loved one engages in occupational therapy activities, the more they will benefit.

When a therapist visits a patient at home, they can more accurately assess the patient’s situation and skills. If the therapist notices that nerve damage in the arm is impacting a patient’s ability to button a shirt, they know the issue needs to be addressed. From there, they will work together to improve dexterity and overall wellness.
