The achievement of the greatest possible independence and quality of life for our guests in everyday life, this means in personal areas, in the home, at work and at play, is paramount within the context of occupational therapy.
Objectives here are:
- attaining the best possible independence in daily activities and social participation
- the promotion and maintenance of existing skills and their optimal usage
- the development of compensation options for function changes and loss
This is achieved through a holistic and multifaceted approach to treatment and targeted attention to activities that have a health-promoting and therapeutic effect.
In individual therapy, the individual problems and resources of individuals are most important.
As supplement to individual therapy and to a strengthening of current skills there are individualized group therapies in motor/functional area (e.g. fine motor skills, hand coordination, ...). In addition, daily life-oriented group therapy, adapted to the individual action roles and activities of the guests (e.g. housework training, garden therapy, graphomotor groups) all provide the opportunity to work on individual objectives.
The following measures are applied:
- Practice of everyday activities (e.g. self-help, housework training, breakfast and lunch supervision)
- Occupational and leisure-related training
- Training of sensorimotor skills (e.g. coarse and fine motor skills, coordination, sensitivity, ...)
- Promotion of neuropsychological resources (e.g. concentration, attention, memory, action plan, etc.)
- Awareness training (spatial, body awareness, ...)
- Advice on and supply of suitable aids
- Splint adjustment
- Ergonomic advice and joint protection
- Carer counselling and training
- Sound bowl massage
- Promotion of social and emotional skills (e.g. enabling experiences of success thanks to skilled and creative techniques)
- Functional electrical stimulation with STIWELL
