Our Occupational Therapy team helps people of all ages who have physical, developmental, social, or emotional challenges return to their highest level of functioning by integrating skilled treatment techniques with patient and caregiver education.
People requiring occupational therapy are often diagnosed with one of the following:
- Recent stroke, head injury, or heart attack
- Progressive neurological conditions (Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis)
- Driving safety issues related to age, dementia or injury
- Hand and upper extremity injuries
- Work-related injuries
- Mobility and balance difficulties requiring manual or power wheelchair evaluations
- Vestibular and visual motor and perceptual deficits
- Home safety needs and adaptive equipment
Your occupational therapist will work closely with your physician and other health-care professionals in an effort to maximize your potential in the shortest possible time. Your therapist may also work with family members, attendants or even your place of employment, in order to recommend adaptations to your home or work environment.
