Aging In Place

76% of Americans over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age (AARP, 2018).

We help you age in place regardless of where you are in the aging journey, whether assist is needed now or you are planning for the future. All aging in place evaluations are conducted by occupational therapists and include assessment of independent living goals and current wellness status.

The following topics may be addressed, depending on your needs:

  • home-set up and universal design

  • self-care and health management

  • prevention of falls

  • transportation options

  • strategies to support brain health

  • availability of assistance for household or personal tasks

Following the comprehensive evaluation, we will help you create a plan to address independent living goals. This plan may include continued visits with the occupational therapist or physical or speech therapy evaluations.

In-Home Rehab Therapy

Rehabilitation Therapy is often indicated after a medical event or illness such as a stroke or surgery. The goal is to help you get back to living your life with confidence. Our services are considered “mobile outpatient therapy” where the therapist comes to you to provide high quality individualized care.

Occupational Therapy (OT) Evaluation and Treatment – to address home safety and fall risk, increasing independence with daily routines, strategies for dealing with memory loss and environmental modification to support physical health and brain health. Skills2Care is offered through our occupational therapists. Please see Caregiver Skill Building for more information.

 

Physical Therapy (PT) Evaluation and Treatment – to address balance, pain, and any issues with movement.

Speech Language Pathology (SLP) Evaluation and Treatment – to address cognitive concerns or speech or language deficits.

Caregiver Skill Building

About 34.2 million Americans have provided unpaid care to an adult age 50 or older in the last 12 months. (National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, 2015).

Although the numbers are high, very few of us have prepared for this role. By the time we realize that we are in a caregiver position we are already overwhelmed and unsure of the next steps.

Our occupational therapists help family caregivers provide safe, compassionate care while also tending to their own wellness needs. We offer hands-on training for transfer techniques and personal care, suggestions for home modifications, and our dementia specific caregiver program, Skills2Care®.

 

Our in-home sessions most often involve both the person needing care and the caregiver. If necessary, we can provide education on a consultation basis and work 1 on 1 with the caregiver.

Skills2Care® is a licensed occupational therapy program that teaches caregivers how to successfully manage the daily challenges of caring for someone with dementia.

Program Goals

  • Improve well-being and skills of caregivers

  • Reduce challenging behaviors that often occur with dementia

  • Slow decline in daily function of people with dementia

Program Topics

  • Understanding dementia

  • Promoting function

  • Communicating effectively

  • Making the home safer

  • Self care for the caregiver

“All of our programs focus on optimizing the well-being, connection, and dignity of the aging person, while ensuring that their family members have the resources, guidance, and information to make thoughtful care decisions,”

- Terri Cassidy, owner of Health Promotion Partners

Brain Health & Wellness

Recent research has shown that there are many lifestyle factors that can reduce our risk of cognitive impairment and even slow the progression of dementia. Our individualized Brain Health services start with a multifactorial brain health assessment and development of a plan to protect against cognitive decline. These sessions may be performed in person or via telehealth.

We will focus on:

  • Normal Aging vs Cognitive Decline

  • Incorporating a Brain Healthy Lifestyle

  • Exercises for Cognitive Stimulation

Sleep Wellness

A good night’s sleep is essential to full engagement in our meaningful activities. Our culture has devalued sleep in favor or productivity and it is only recently coming into focus as an important aspect of health and health promotion.

Our occupational therapists address rest and sleep disruption to help you optimize your waking hours. Poor sleep is a contributor to higher incidence of illness, decreased performance, higher risk of accidents, impaired function and judgement, and decreased overall quality of life (Institute of Medicine, 2006). Through tailored assessment and training, and consultation we help you reclaim restful sleep.

Older Driver Safety Evaluations

Older Adults often have good driving habits and partake in fewer risk taking behaviors than drivers in other age groups. Age related physical, visual, and cognitive changes, however, can impact the skills related to driving and therefore affect driver safety. A comprehensive driving evaluation is an important part of safety and peace of mind as you age.

Diagnoses that may impact driving:

  • Mild Cognitive Impairment

  • Dementia 

  • Alzheimer's 

  • Macular Degeneration, cataracts or visual field loss

  • Arthritis

  • Neuropathy

  • Stroke

  • Subdural hematoma

  • Effects of chemotherapy

A comprehensive driver evaluation may be required by your doctor or may be requested by you or your family to determine the effect of age-related changes on your driving fitness.

Adaptive Equipment Evaluation

For individuals who have an injury or disability that impacts their ability to access vehicle controls, we provide evaluation and training in the use of hand controls, left foot accelerator, and/or steering devices. The entry point to this program is a comprehensive driver evaluation.

Training - Our adaptive equipment evaluation and training will require multiple sessions. A prescription for the equipment will be given once safe use of the equipment is demonstrated in our vehicle. This generally entails the evaluation session, 2-4 training sessions, and a final fitting session.

​Final Fitting - The final training session will be completed in the client's vehicle once the adaptive equipment has been installed. This final training session is essential to completing the program. Once this final session has been completed we will send the paperwork to your doctor to have make any necessary adjustments to your drivers license.
