Occupational Therapy Services

Occupational Therapy is based on engagement in meaningful activities of daily living. Some examples would be increasing independence and safety with dressing, toileting, showering, cooking, and leisure activities.

Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Occupational Therapist Assistants (OTAs) encourage participation in these activities despite impairments or limitations in physical and mental functioning. OTs and OTAs recommend adaptations/modifications to a resident’s environment to increase safety and independence, educate family and caregivers and may aide in increasing resident’s upper extremity strength, improve endurance and develop a home exercise program.
