Home Health Care: improving independence for adults who are recovering from various illnesses and diseases.
I see my first of 5-6 patients at 9:00 am. I spend between 30-and 60 minutes with them in their place of residence. I will then provide specific Occupational Therapy principles to help them to achieve the mutually agreed upon goals, in hopes of maximizing their independence at home. An example would be to help a person suffering from the effects of a stroke, to learn to perform their daily activities in adaptive ways, as well as work with functional use of the impaired arm.
Here's the first step for professionals
You might have to relocate out of the Bay Area to get good work. Join the Association of California if you're an OT. They encourage you to join this organization to stay on top of everything to continue to be an OT.
