Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps patients regain as much independence as possible in their daily lives. The OT team works primarily with patients’ basic needs by practicing everyday activities: getting in and out of the bed safely; getting to the bathroom in order to use the facilities safely; managing kitchen activities safely, just to name a few. 

Special equipment may also be incorporated into a patient’s plan: reachers, sock-aides, raised toilet seats, bath tub benches, and other compensatory methods can make a major difference for patients in reaching their everyday goals.

We have occupational therapists who specialize in the treatment of hand injuries, sensory integration disorders with children, and workplace ergonomics.
