Our licensed occupational therapists help individuals of all ages regain, develop or master everyday skills in order to live independent, productive and satisfying lives.
Ayers occupational therapists assist individuals with all types of activities such as using a computer, writing, reading, dressing, cooking, eating, driving, grooming and bathing and much more. We help educate family members and caregivers on the best way to help your loved one through therapy.
OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY MAY INCLUDE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Home evaluation
- Home living skills
- Hand rehabilitation
- Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
- Cognitive perceptual retraining
- Transfer and mobility retraining
- Energy conservation technique
- Utilization of adaptive equipment
- Upper extremity therapeutic exercises
- Fabrication of splints, slings and orthopedic device
First, Ayers will assess individuals in order to develop their Activities of Daily Living (ADL). For example: our first goal to an individual with physical disabilities would be to help the individual learn how to perform daily routines such as dressing, grooming, bathing and eating safely on their own.
Once those skills are mastered by the individual, Ayers will assist in developing a program tailored to the person to help them perform tasks such as participating in education, caring for a home and family, seeking and maintaining employment and more.
