Occupational Therapy

Helping patients regain their independence through occupational therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is a type of help that can give patients more freedom to do things on their own at home. The things you do every day can get harder as you get older or if you get hurt or sick. Occupational therapy can also help people adjust to changes that will help them fit in with their peers.

Having an in-home occupational therapist will mean you can benefit from occupational therapy home health assessments because this lets your therapist make a plan that will help you do daily tasks better. Your therapist will also make suggestions for equipment and training and show your family members how to help you.

How Our Occupational Therapy Team Works

The HealthFlex occupational therapy team helps people with mental, physical, emotional, or developmental conditions regain and improve the skills they need to cook, eat, bathe, dress, and even use a computer on their own.

Our California-licensed OTs work with each patient, the patient’s family, and the patient’s main doctor to come up with and follow a plan of care. We regularly look at the plan to see how the patient is doing and make changes as needed.

What are the Goals of Occupational Therapy?

The goals of in-home occupational therapy for each patient may be different, but they usually all have to do with improving the patient’s quality of life and making sure they can live safely and on their own. Occupational therapy gives family members peace of mind that a loved one won’t hurt themselves when they can’t be there to help.

Benefits of an At-Home Occupational Therapist

One of the best things about occupational therapy is that it can be done at home, where the patient feels most at ease. Some other advantages are:
Improved self-esteem
Better chances at social interaction
Increased opportunity for communication
Reduced levels of stress
Build up of physical strength
Relearning old skills or learning new skills
Unique and customized care

What to Expect from
In-Home Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists use a wide range of techniques and training methods to help their patients stay as independent as possible for as long as possible. Some of these methods are exercise, training, education, rehabilitation, and more.

Occupational therapists can help people who are having trouble getting around their homes, getting dressed, taking a bath, or going to the bathroom. Occupational therapists also help teach patients how to do everyday tasks safely based on their abilities.

The best in-home care experience. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. I will recommend this agency to my friends and family.


This is the first that I had your services. I have many others before, but yours are the best. The nurse took her time to help me and listen. By the time, she left I was feeling great.


I am extremely grateful for the care provided by your nurse and physical therapist. Both are caring, capable and devoted professionals. More important, they are good people. Because of these two, your company is highly recommended.


Special thanks for the excellent care I received from your physical therapist and nurse. I have been in other home health care systems and this is (by) far the best I had. Please let them know how well they are doing.


My nurse, case manager and my physical therapist were extraordinary. They were compassionate and good listeners. They should be commended for their care they provided to me and my family. The social worker was outstanding and thank you so much.


It is a great agency. Very professional and knowledgeable people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


The nurse and physical therapist I was assigned have been excellent with their communication, care, and compassion. I truly appreciate their attention to detail and their going above and beyond to meet my needs.

They talk to me and listen. That is always great. Thank you.


Your team was wonderful and really helped me recover quickly. Everyone was wonderful, caring, and concerned.
