How does an Occupational Therapist help in my planning?

Occupational therapists (OTs) can be involved in your planning process before any modifications or home planning take place. By doing so, they can offer insights into the future challenges you may face and suggest solutions that can help you age in place with greater ease and independence.

OTs can assess your current living environment and identify potential hazards or barriers to participating in your daily activities. They make recommendations for home modifications or assistive devices that can help you overcome these barriers and improve your overall quality of life. OTs can collaborate with you and your family to develop a personalized care plan that addresses your unique needs and goals and help coordinate and connect to care services among various healthcare providers and community resources.

By working withan OT early in the planning process, you can avoid potential design flaws, communication breakdowns, and gaps in care planning that may arise later. This can ultimately help you age at home and save you time, money, and stress in the long run.
