Adult Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapists can assist individuals of all ages and backgrounds, in the clinic, home or workplace. They are specialised in identifying relationships between people’s health, well being and daily living.
With this knowledge, OT’s work with people on a single, or set of goals, usually aimed at improving their capacity for being productive, looking after themselves and enjoying leisure time. These goals can be broken down into some key areas, with a goal of making addressing them a bit easier:
- Activities of Daily Living
- Instrumental Activities of Daily Living
- Social Participation
- Vocation and Education
- Leisure and Play
- Sleep and Rest
Ways We Can Assist
As soon as some goals have been set out based on one of the key areas, the Occupational Therapist can then start working on comprehensive therapy programs with the client for improvement. Any number of methods could be employed including:
- Face to face therapy in the clinic to work on a physical activity of daily living
- Therapy in the clinic working on cognitive skills, like finances, getting around or interacting with people
- Therapy in the home, workplace or outside setting
- Consultation, assessment and a plan on modifying an environment using technology or aids
- The provision of therapeutic advice and planning to a client and/or their family.
Occasionally, due to the inherent complexity of addressing any number of areas, a therapy plan will involve different aspects and lines of effort. Navigating funding and administration can also be a huge task, even for an Occupational Therapist.
Evolve Therapy OT’s work together as a health care team, to best assist our clients. Whether its one member of our team working on NDIS home modifications and funding administration, and another on face to face therapy, we find working together when needed with our clients, provides the best outcomes.
