Occupational Therapy

Our Occupational Therapists will work with our Residents to increase independence with activities of daily living (ADL’s) including bathing, eating, dressing, self-care and home management tasks.

Safety awareness and fall prevention education is also provided by our Occupational Therapists.

Services occupational therapy offers include:
  • Upper body strengthening, to have the ability to dress, toilet, and other activities necessary to return home
  • Transfer training, to be able to safely demonstrate the ability to get up and transfer
  • Wheelchair management, for those who are wheelchair-bound so they are comfortable and are at a low risk of skin breakdown
  • Cognition to make sure Residents’ can rationally demonstrate they are safe, in order to return home

If you or a loved one have been recently hospitalized and
