Our occupational therapists can help patients to safely and independently perform activities of daily living, including cooking, bathing, and dressing. Using wide range of interventions, our therapists adopt tasks and modify the environment to enhance each patients ability to function in their physical and social environment. They provide sensory-motor treatment for strength, endurance, range of motion, and balance. They can also help with memory orientation, cognitive skills and daily life.
What do Occupational Therapists do?
Occupational therapy treats the whole person. Whether they have recovered from injuries, or have developmental or cognitive disabilities affecting their motor skills, emotions, or behaviors. It is unique in that it uses a holistic approach to look not only at the reasons a patient’s participation in activities has been impacted, but also at the patient’s roles and environment. The approach includes wellness promotion, habilitation, and rehabilitation. OTs are helping people to fully engage in daily life!
