Athens Regional Health System

Occupational Therapy

Our home health occupational therapists provide therapy for upper extremity function, including range of motion, strength and coordination, which may have been impacted by illness or injury. We also provide neuromuscular and cognitive training following strokes.

Our therapists work closely with patients, families, caregivers and other home health team members to assess the patient's home environment to improve safety during the provision of care to the patient.

Recommendations on the most appropriate equipment to assist with patient care are a key service provided. Occupational therapists provide interventions for independence with medication management and train patients and caregivers how to adapt and safety perform daily activities such as bathing, toileting, dressing and feeding.
