Occupational Therapy Treatments
Areas of intervention in the rehabilitation process:
Training in activities of daily living (ADLs), such as grooming, clothing, meals, bank transfers, money management, household chores and in the case of children, playing.
Rehabilitation of the upper extremity. With focus on different motor and sensitive components, such as strength, coordination, endurance, dexterity, sensitivity and proprioception.
Preparation of upper extremity splints.
Home-Based Intervention, accessibility and assistive technologies. In case of need, the treatment concludes with the displacement of the therapist to the patient’s home for a housing adaptation. The therapist gives advises on any device support that could improve the patient’s autonomy, such as a wheelchair or other mobility and technical aids.
Occupational Therapy in a multi-sensory environment
We have created a new treatment room at Vintersol, that is technically equipped to provide sensory experiences. This harmonious environment eases the communication between the patient and the therapist, helping them to focus on patient's specific goals. The aim is also to create adapted behaviors and to improve his/her autonomy and life quality. The multi-sensory room is based on the Snoezelen concept, a theory developed in 1970 by the Dutch therapists Jan Hulsegge and Ad Verheul. Snoezelen is a contraction of the two words in Dutch “snuffelen” (to seek out, to explore) and “doezelen” (to doze, to snooze).
