How can occupational therapy help?
Occupational therapy can improve motor skills, balance and coordination, and allow people to acquire the ability to perform everyday tasks and regain independence in all areas of their lives.
Often, children with developmental delays may be referred to an occupational therapist to learn and master basic life skills such as getting dressed. They may also develop positive behaviours and learn social skills through occupational therapy so that they may navigate social situations with greater ease.
For adults and seniors, the need for occupational therapy may arise from ageing or conditions such as cancer and dementia. Besides working together to regain independence in day-to-day life, an occupational therapist may also identify and recommend environment modifications to support the individual.
Conditions occupational therapy can help with
- Cerebral Palsy
- Developmental disorders
Regain your confidence and independence with home occupational therapy
While usually conducted in rehabilitation facilities, occupational therapy can also be conducted in the privacy of your home. Certified occupational therapists can curate a personalised treatment plan for you to recover comfortably in an environment familiar to you, anywhere in Singapore.
Being in the home environment can help occupational therapists understand your unique lifestyle habits and living environment, allowing them to customise your care plan accordingly. They may also suggest simple home modifications that may be helpful in your daily life.
Having an occupational therapist come to your home also removes the need to travel, helping you save time, money and trouble.

Top questions about Occupational Therapy
What do occupational therapists do?
Using exercises and other forms of therapy, occupational therapists help individuals develop, recover, improve and maintain motor skills, balance and coordination to help them regain independence in daily living.
Who needs occupational therapy?
Children, adults and seniors with physical, sensory, or cognitive problems may need occupational therapy (OT) to help acquire skills and abilities for daily living and regain independence in all aspects of their lives. This can help to enhance an individual’s emotional, social, and physical wellbeing.
Who are the Homage occupational therapists?
Homage Occupational Therapists are individuals passionate and dedicated in caring for seniors and families in need. 100% Singaporean, they are certified under the Ministry of Health’s Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC).
Should I prepare anything for my occupational therapy session?
There is no need for any preparation.
If you have any doctor’s referral letter, previous occupational therapy/ medical reports or investigations (X-ray or MRI), we would reccomend sharing these information with your occupational therapist for a more thorough understanding of your condition for therapy treatment.
How long does an occupational therapy visit take?
Each Homage occupational therapy visit will be one-hour long (60-minutes).
How many occupational therapy sessions will I need?
Every individual’s recovery and rehabilitation journey is different. The occupational therapist should be able to advise you of an appropriate treatment plan and frequency after the initial assessment.
What should I expect during my first occupational therapy visit?
During your first visit, our occupational therapy will first assess your health and physical condition, home environment, understand the goals, develop and advise a personalised treatment plan.
If time permits, the occupational therapist will also work with you through the treatment plan during the first visit.
What is the difference between physiotherapy and occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy focuses on holistic wellness as well as finer motor and cognitive skills. The goal is to help you and your loved one perform daily activities and meaningful interactions with maximum independence possible. The treatment plan may include physical exercise, therapeutic adaptations as well as home modifications. For someone recovering from a stroke, our occupational therapist might develop treatments to help with the management of daily activities like eating, showering and getting dressed.
Physiotherapy focuses on treating you and your loved one’s physical impairment (body movement and function). Physiotherapists are trained extensively in body mechanics and use treatment techniques that are designed to reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. For someone recovering from a stroke, a physiotherapist might develop exercises to strengthen the muscles for walking, standing, and other movements.
