  • Recommendations for adaptive equipment that makes daily activities easier, including cooking, eating, dressing and bathing.
  • Visual impairment compensation strategies.
  • Caregiver training and tips for those with cognitive (thinking) difficulties.

Occupational Therapy Home Visits

What To Expect During the First Visit

During the first occupational therapy home visit, your OT will take a complete medical history. This includes asking questions about the recent events that prompted you to seek OT care. They’ll also observe your ability to perform certain common tasks.

Your OT will take all of this information and create a personalized care plan specific to your needs. They’ll review this care plan together with you and/or your caregivers to ensure that everyone is on the same page. Care plans typically include:

  • Areas that need addressed
  • Exercises to address your needs
  • Independent exercises you can practice between sessions
  • Safety awareness and training
Subsequent In-Home Occupational Therapy Visits 

After the initial visit, your OT will visit you in your home as needed. Between visits, you should complete the independent exercises that your OT assigns, since these can help you increase your strength and achieve your goals more quickly.

The duration of your overall treatment depends on your ability to meet your goals and maximize your potential.
