Some community therapy teams go into care homes, to do specific assessments and treatment, however there are few Occupational Therapists working permanently in care homes.
This is something I am going to explore further. In particular focus on how Occupational Therapists can help to improve the life of individuals living in care homes. It certainly does not mean that individuals have to lose their independence and occupational focus.
I welcome any input/comments about how Occupational Therapists can contribute to the care of individuals in care homes and will be posting again soon.
