Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy provides services to help regain the skills needed in order to return home. Our occupational therapists work with Residents with an array of diagnosis that has had their abilities interrupted by injury, illness, or surgery. Occupational therapists, in turn, set up goals for these Residents to learn or relearn activities of daily living with the ultimate goal of returning home, if possible.

Services occupational therapy offers include:

  • Upper body strengthening, to have the ability to dress, toilet and other activities necessary to return home;
  • Transfer training, to be able to safely demonstrate the ability to get up and transfer;
  • Wheelchair management, for those who are wheelchair-bound so they are comfortable and are at a low risk of skin breakdown;
  • Cognition to make sure Residents’ can rationally demonstrate they are safe, in order to return home.
