Occupational Therapy

Regain Function – and Hope – through Occupational Therapy

When “life as you know it” suddenly changes, and you can no longer do the things you 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. So, if you or a loved one are in a situation where “life as you know it” has changed, don’t lose hope. Our occupational therapists are here to help.

Our Programs Help Patients Achieve Independence… and Much More

The goal of occupational therapy is to help patients who are challenged by everyday life restore function and regain independence, so that they can live productive, fulfilling lives. To this end, our occupational therapists work one-on-one with each patient (and, where applicable, their family) to develop a customized treatment plan that will help them accomplish their personal goals and achieve optimal performance in daily life, home management, leisure, and many more activities.

For patients who have suffered a stroke, brain trauma, or other life event that has left them both physically and cognitively challenged, our occupational therapists first focus on helping the patient regain daily-living abilities, such as dressing, grooming, bathing, and eating. Once the patient has demonstrated proficiency in these areas, our therapists then work on integrating that individual into the world by assisting them with tasks required for education, living alone, and/or seeking employment.

Additionally, through our proprietary Centers of Excellence programs, our occupational therapists help patients address specific issues related to incontinence, balance, cognition, respiration, and cardiovascular function, so that they can better function and go about their daily activities with more confidence.

To make sure that our patients receive the most effective treatment, our occupational therapists offer comprehensive home and job site evaluations, as well as guidance for family members.
