Therapy in a familiar environment In the focus of occupational therapy treatment are exercises that help the patient regain the ability to act and thus maximum self-sufficiency and independence. This affects everyday life in the home as well as professional life. Occupational therapy Sessions must not necessarily be held in a practice. For persons who are physically restricted, it is possible in the form of home visits. A treatment in the home has the great advantage that the patient can be treated in his familiar environment. Practical problems also often occur in the domestic environment, therefore it can be advantageous to perform occupational therapy as a home visit. The occupational therapist can get a picture of the home environment and give suggestions to the transformation in this. The conversion of some pieces of furniture or the use of tools can contribute significantly to a relief in the area of freedom of movement.
Home visits can also occur in nursing homes and other facilities. The Praxis fur Ergotherapie Elisabeth Brechtel from Cologne is available for more information.
