Helping you achieve more independence
Daily Living On Your Own
The Daily Living Skills Program at Therapy Achievements focuses on helping individuals re-gain the ability to do tasks necessary for daily living – cooking, cleaning, going to work, driving, shopping and getting together with friends.
Our Driving Rehabilitation Services empower eligible patients to achieve more independence in their lives. Your therapist will begin with a Driving Evaluation, which will assess your physical and cognitive abilities to determine if there are any safety issues. Your therapist will then train you in risk reduction and compensatory strategies. We can also train you how to use adaptive driving equipment, such as hand controls and a left gas accelerator if needed.
Functional Living and Adaptive Technology can enable people with paralysis and other disabling conditions access to their environment in ways that were not possible in the past. We will work with you to identify devices that will allow greater independence and help you to be less dependent on family members and caregivers.
Maneuverability, postural support, durability, weight, transport options, and control access are all factors to consider when choosing a wheelchair to meet your needs. Therapy Achievements works as a team with you, your vendor, and your doctor to ensure you get the right chair with the right fit to maximize your mobility.
Low Vision Services
The Low Vision and Visual Rehabilitation Service at Therapy Achievements can help individuals with all levels of vision loss ranging from mild visual impairment to legal blindness. Our comprehensive approach to care provides occupational therapists who are trained to evaluate your condition and identify an individualized rehabilitation plan to help you maximize remaining functional vision and maintain independence in daily living.
