Frequently Asked Questions
What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is a health profession that helps people of all ages to participate in the activities they want and need to do in their daily lives. Occupational Therapists work with clients to improve their physical, mental, and emotional well-being, and to overcome challenges or barriers that prevent them from doing the things that matter to them.

 How can Occupational Therapy help me after a stroke?

A stroke can affect your ability to move, think, communicate, and perform everyday tasks. Occupational Therapy can help you regain or adapt your skills, improve your confidence and independence, and enhance your quality of life. Occupational Therapists can assess your needs, goals, and abilities, and provide interventions such as exercises, education, adaptive equipment, and strategies to help you resume or modify your activities at home or in the community.

 What is telehealth and how does it work?

Telehealth is the delivery of health care services using technology such as phone, video, or online platforms. Telehealth allows you to receive Occupational Therapy services from the comfort and convenience of your own environment, without having to travel to a clinic or hospital. Telehealth can also make it easier for your Occupational Therapist to see your home situation, involve your family or caregivers, and provide personalized and timely care.

What are the benefits and limitations of telehealth?

Telehealth can offer many benefits, such as:

 - Increased access to Occupational Therapy services, especially for people in rural or underserved areas, or those with mobility or transportation issues.

 - Reduced costs and time associated with travel.

 - Greater flexibility and convenience in scheduling.

However, telehealth also has some limitations, such as:

 - Potential technical issues or glitches with the equipment or software.

 - Less hands-on interaction with your therapist.

 - Need for additional training or support to use the technology or equipment.

How do I prepare for a telehealth session?

Before your telehealth session, you will need to:

 - Ensure that you have a reliable internet connection, a device with a camera and microphone, and a compatible software or platform that your Occupational Therapist will use.

 - Test your device, software, and internet connection, and make sure that your camera and microphone are working properly.

 - Choose a quiet, comfortable, and private space where you can do your session without interruptions or distractions.

 - Gather any materials or equipment that your occupational therapist has asked you to have.

 - Dress appropriately and comfortably, and wear any glasses, hearing aids, or other devices that you normally use.

 - Have a backup plan in case of technical problems, such as a phone number or email address to contact your Occupational Therapist.

What can I expect during a telehealth session?

During your telehealth session, you will be able to see and hear your Occupational Therapist on your device screen, and they will be able to see and hear you as well. Your Occupational Therapist will ask you questions about your health history, your current situation, your goals, and your preferences. They will also observe and assess your abilities, strengths, and challenges, and provide feedback and guidance. Depending on your needs and goals, your Occupational Therapist may also teach you new skills, demonstrate exercises or activities, prescribe a home program, recommend adaptive equipment or modifications, or refer you to other resources or services. Your Occupational Therapist will also monitor your progress, evaluate your outcomes, and adjust your plan as needed.

Your telehealth sessions may take place in various parts of your home for real life skills integrations based on your specific needs.
