Occupational Therapy focuses on making sure the patient can perform the activities of daily living with the highest level of independence. Focusing on patient desire and ability, we guide the patients and their families in developing compensatory techniques to achieve the highest level of function to enhance quality of life.
Occupational therapists provide skilled care to improve the patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living (ADL) such as dressing, bathing, feeding, grooming and toileting. They also focus on functional mobility, positioning techniques, restraint reduction, contracture management and home safety. Occupational therapy is primarily concerned with improving or developing/restoring the sensory, motor, cognitive and perceptual skills which have been impaired by illness or injury. Upon discharge from therapy, restorative programs are established with the nursing staff or family members to ensure continuity of quality care.
