In the older population, memory, cognitive functions and health conditions often decline with age. Our Occupational therapists with a specialty in geriatrics assist the elderly by analyzing the patient and finding out what might be best suited for their emotional, physical, environmental, and psychological needs. Specialized exercises are then designed to support the functions of whatever patients need help with. In fact, they will offer personalized cognitive training program to support daily activities and interactions of patients, focusing on the adaptation of the environment and tasks to fit the person.
For patients staying in hospital or rehabilitation centers, occupational therapists can offer education to patients and caregivers to increase their knowledge on the condition and suggest appropriate training programs to ensure patients are well cared for and at the same time improve patient’s functional ability, development and to prevent disability.
Home and elderly center environments are important for the wellbeing and safety for elderly and therefore our Occupational therapists provides assessment and advice on home alternations or environmental modification if necessary.
