Supporting your patient’s mobility and cognition
Occupational therapists are providing vital rehabilitation support for those impacted by COVID, especially with many of those experiencing the long-term effects of this illness, including fatigue and/or cognitive impairment.
Social isolation is another issue impacting many vulnerable or elderly people, who may have needed to distance themselves from their social activities and family. This can lead to the deterioration in physical ability and the feeling of loneliness, both issues that can lead to a decline in mental health*.
Cognitive assessment occupational therapy can be a viable solution.
