Physical & Occupational Therapy

Many therapies can be provided at home to speed recovery from illness, injury or surgery, including physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Home based therapy allows individuals to develop independence with daily activities in a convenient and comfortable setting.  Families are also able to be closely involved in the rehabilitation process.  Therapy plays an important role in helping an individual regain productivity and independence and therapists here at Interim HealthCare of Smyrna are often a critical part of the health care team.

Occupational Therapy Helps with Everyday Activities

Occupational Therapy focuses on an individual’s ability to perform the broad range of everyday life activities. OT promotes independence by improving the skills required to perform these activities and/or teaching alternative ways to accomplish them.

A physician’s referral is required in order to receive OT. Based on a thorough evaluation, the therapist will create a customized treatment plan designed to improve skills and maximize functional abilities based on priorities and personal goals. The therapist will consider a person’s physical, psychological, and social well-being, as well as environmental factors when developing a plan of care and treatment.

Occupational therapy helps individuals regain day to day skills such as dressing and feeding.   It may be applicable after:

  • Hip or Knee Replacement Surgery
  • A stroke
  • Heart Failure
  • A heart attack
  • Joint pain in hands, arms or shoulders
  • Difficulty dressing
  • Difficulty bathing
  • Difficulty with meals
  • Declining memory
  • Any noticeable decline in function
