In-Home Occupational Therapy Care More Readily Available

Veterans Memorial Hospital Rehabilitation is now able to offer more in-home occupational therapy care, thanks to the addition of Amy Evanson, Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant.   Amy works closely with the Community and Home Care Department patients, providing patients assistance with the day-to-day tasks of living at home following an illness, injury or surgery, helping them regain function and independence.

Amy travels to Village Creek to visit Judy Shogren three times per week, following her recent nursing home stay.  Amy takes time to work with Judy on her routine in-home duties to build her function and independence.

“I don’t know what I’d do without this service, now that I have it,” states Judy. “I’m so glad to be able to be back in my home.”

Amy spends 45 minutes at each session with Judy, working with her on her upper body exercises as well as standing tolerance and functional mobility within her home.   She takes her out into her sunroom, Judy’s favorite spot in the house, to work on these tasks.

“Judy is moving better since we started meeting, slow but sure,” states Amy.  “I really enjoy working with her during our occupational therapy sessions.”
