Our Occupational Therapy (OT) program focuses on an individual’s ability to perform the broad range of everyday life activities.
Our Occupational Therapists promote independence in all facets of our patient’s lives by improving the skills required to perform everyday activities and/or teaching alternative ways to accomplish them. They work with patients who have conditions that are mentally, physically, developmentally or emotionally disabling.
The aim of our dedicated and experienced Occupational therapists are to improve our patients’ ability to perform their daily activities and valued life roles at work, in the home, at leisure and socially, facilitate successful adaptations to disruptions in lifestyle, prevent losses of function and improve or maintain psychological status.
A physician’s referral is required in order to receive OT. Once we receive your physician’s order for OT, our Occupational Therapists based on a thorough evaluation will create a customized treatment plan designed to improve skills and maximize functional abilities based on priorities and personal goals. The therapist will consider the patient’s physical, psychological, and social well-being, as well as environmental factors when developing a plan of care and treatment.
