What Occupational Therapy treatments are usually covered?
An occupational therapist may run through different ways to perform everyday tasks which may be causing a patient difficulty. For example, if a client is finding it difficult to chop food for a meal, they may suggest buying food which is pre-prepared. They may also run through different methods of obtaining goods and services, such as obtaining information on services which deliver such goods and services to the client’s home, or public transport options that run past the client’s house.
The therapist may also perform rehabilitative treatments such as going through step-by-step processes of lifting, sitting, standing etc, performing each step with the client so they know how to complete the process on their own in the most comfortable, safest way possible.
It is important that you confirm with your therapist which treatments they provide.
