April is Occupational Therapy Month and we are honored to celebrate our home health OTs at Quality First Home Care! If you are a caregiver for your loved one, you know the valuable services that occupational therapists provide — from training in essential mobility to help with domestic tasks, self-care routines, and important communication, recreational and social skills.
Patients who could benefit from OT may exhibit a DECREASE in one or more of the following areas:
Upper extremity strength and range of motion (ROM)
Endurance for functional activity
Fine motor coordination
Occupational Therapy (OT) can help patients with a variety of diagnoses to improve their independence with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs include but aren't limited to dressing, bathing, medication management, toileting, and functional communication.
Occupational Therapists employ a number of techniques for personalized care at home including:
Adaptive equipment assessment and training
Upper extremity strength and ROM exercises
Home safety evaluation and modification
Establishing a home exercise program
Fine motor re-training
Teaching compensatory strategies
Home health care allows you to manage your care at home. Our team works with your physician to develop a personalized plan that addresses your health care needs and helps you meet your goals. We help you regain your prior level of function, maintain your independence, and improve your overall quality of life.
We offer home health, private duty, and personal care services in twenty-nine counties throughout West and Middle Tennessee. To meet the needs of our patients, we support them as they navigate the healthcare system, comfort them through each stage of illness, and empower them to make informed decisions. Our mission to CARE with SKILL AND COMPASSION is clearly lived through our dedicated staff and in our relationships with healthcare providers throughout the Tennessee area.
