What exactly does an occupational therapist do?
Occupational therapists (OTs) help people with physical, cognitive, or emotional challenges to perform daily activities. They evaluate abilities, develop personalized treatment plans, implement interventions, monitor progress, and educate patients and caregivers on strategies to manage their condition and improve their ability to function in daily life.
How does what you do with seniors differ from other age groups?
At Synaptic, we understand that seniors have unique needs and challenges that require specialized care. Our approach to working with this population is grounded in a holistic and individualized approach, recognizing that each person’s situation is different. Our team of experienced therapists works closely with seniors and their families to create customized therapy plans that address their specific concerns and goals. We prioritize activities that promote functional independence, improve mobility, and enhance overall quality of life. Our therapists also place a strong emphasis on fall prevention, recognizing the importance of maintaining balance and stability in older adults. Through our comprehensive and compassionate approach to care, we help seniors stay healthy, active, and engaged in their communities.
