When “life as you know it” suddenly changes, and patients can no longer do the things they once could, it can be very frustrating. Sadly, many people in such situations acquiesce to their impairment. After having a stroke, brain trauma, or other major life event, they feel overwhelmed by the difficulty of things that were once simple and assume that they will never regain function. But their assumption is wrong. Through occupational therapy, they can regain function. Our occupational therapists are here to help.
