Since 1917, Occupational Therapists have provided customized interventions designed to meet the specific goals of every individual. This April, the country celebrates the 35th annual Occupational Therapy Month and the importance of services for those regaining their ability to maintain safe and independent living.
Every year, millions of Americans are discharged from the hospital following a procedure, illness, or injury. Many require intensive rehabilitation therapies to regain their strength and ultimately, their independence. As individuals recover, their hope is to return back to everyday life as soon as possible. Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio can help.
For patients recovering from orthopedic surgery, a period of physical therapy must begin almost immediately and continue almost daily without interruption. This can require as much as two weeks of in-patient rehab, often in a residential care facility.
As a vital community resource, Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio is proud to care for our communities. We are dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of patients and families and helping individuals achieve optimal health and well-being in the comfort of home.
Dysphasia, or the inability to swallow normally, can affect people who are recovering from surgery, a brain injury or a stroke, or who deal with progressive degenerative neurological diseases like Parkinson’s or ALS.
