Community Rehabilitation Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy helps to solve the problems that interfere with an individual's ability to do the things that are important to them. Occupational Therapy can also help to prevent a problem or minimize its effects.

An Occupational Therapist may help you if you have:

  • Fallen recently, have a fear of falling, and / or you are at risk of falling
  • Have health concerns and / or safety concerns regarding your ability to do things during your day that you need to do. 

For Example:

  • Getting dressed
  • Taking a bath or shower
  • Making meals
  • Getting in and out of your car
  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Going to the store
  • Moving around in your home
  • Have seating and / or mobility needs (i.e. assessment or reassessment needed for a new or current wheelchair, decreased independence with wheelchair mobility).
  • Require assistive equipment to improve safety and accessibility of your environment (home and community)

Who is it for?

Home-based services are intended to serve individuals that are not able to attend out-patient services due to accessibility, mobility, etc. reasons. Home-based services allow therapists to serve those individuals whose needs are best evaluated and addressed within the home. GASHA's services are available to people of all ages.

When and where is it offered?

Home visits are offered by scheduled appointment arranged through the Program medical secretary based on therapist availability

Does the program require a referral?

Community Occupational therapy services can be accessed by referral by physician or other health care provider. As well, people can self-refer; meaning one can contact the secretary directly and request services.
