What Is a Senior Occupational Therapy Program?

A senior occupational therapy program is a type of rehabilitation program that helps seniors regain self-sufficiency after enduring an injury or illness. An occupational therapy program typically includes a team of occupational, physical, and speech therapists who work together to help the senior regain strength, range of motion, and cognitive function. The length of the program often depends on the senior’s individual needs, but most programs last for several weeks or months.

How Can Occupational Therapy Services Help Residents?

As we age, it’s natural for our physical abilities to change. We may not be as strong or agile as we used to be. These changes can make everyday activities more complex and lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. Seniors’ occupational therapy can help offset these changes and improve their quality of life. It can help older adults regain their independence by teaching them how to adapt to their new physical abilities. Some benefits of occupational therapy for seniors include:

  • A cognitive function improvement
  • Improved balance and coordination
  • The ability to move around more easily
  • Enhanced ability to participate in daily activities
  • Reduced risk of falls and injuries

Through occupational therapy, seniors can learn how to safely perform activities of daily living, such as cooking, cleaning, and bathing. They can also learn how to adapt their home to make it safer, such as installing grab bars in the shower and using equipment to assist with mobility. The Corrigan House provides occupational therapy for seniors, conveniently located an hour from Allentown, Scranton, and the Pocono areas.
