Occupational Therapy

  1. Are you having more difficulty getting in and out of the shower or bathtub?
  2. Has an injury made it harder for you to put on or remove your clothes?
  3. Have everyday activities such as writing or using a fork to eat become more difficult or painful?
If any of the above issues are affecting you, you may benefit from Occupational Therapy (OT), which is a service that focuses on adapting your home or work environment to improve your safety and mobility. Occupational therapists (OTs) will help you get back to your routine activities through the therapeutic use of activities of daily life (ADLs). Getting dressed, using eating utensils, taking a bath or shower safely, and facilitating the strength to cook effectively are just some of the tasks that OTs provide, which maximize your function and safety both inside and out of the home.

Occupational therapy treatments include:

  • Helping children and adults with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations,
  • Helping people recovering from injuries such as a stroke or rotator cuff tears regain fine motor skills,
  • Providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes common with aging.
OT services typically include:
  • An evaluation, during which you, your family and an occupational therapist determine your goals,
  • Customized treatment and exercises to improve your ability to perform daily activities and reach your goals, and
  • An updated evaluation to ensure that your goals are being met and/or make changes to your treatment plan.
Occupational therapy services may include:
  • A comprehensive examination and treatment based on your home environment, school setting, or workplace.
  • Recommendations for adaptive equipment (such as a raised toilet seat or shower chair) and training in its use, and guidance and education for your family members and caregivers.
