At the Department of Occupational Therapy, we care for those whose lives have been disrupted by physical injury, illness or social, developmental, and psychological difficulties. We focus on fine motor activities and improving cognitive abilities.
Our occupational therapists are trained in the latest advances in occupational therapy and will work with you on an individualized care plan designed to help patients achieve independence.
Our occupational therapy program focuses on working with upper extremities, stroke patients, improving activities of daily living, and building adaptive equipment in order to help our patients regain independence as soon as possible.
We conduct cognitive and perceptual evaluations for those who have experienced trauma to the head and post-operative education to help patients better understand and help themselves in the care process.
