Occupational Therapy

quitar_small.jpgSurvivors of brain injury often have to re-learn simple tasks, such as basic self care, transportation skills, and money management. The Occupational Therapy Department helps individuals who've suffered a brain injury from a stroke or traumatic brain injury achieve independence, wellness and prevention in all facets of their lives. Following an acquired brain injury, occupational therapy assists patients in reconstructing their lives and developing the "skills for the job of living"; skills that are necessary to lead an independent and satisfying life.

The OT department provides functional self care evaluations and cognitive therapies for basic and advanced ADL's (Activities of Daily Living) in the areas of:

  • Personal management (laundry, housekeeping, hygiene)
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Community Mobility
  • Sequencing
  • Money management
  • Upper extremity/hand function
  • Functional perceptual-cognitive skills
  • Adaptive equipment and upper extremity splinting
  • Recommendation and usage training
  • Guidance to family members and caregivers
  • Customized cognitive rehabilitation using re-training and compensatory strategies
  • Home assessments for accessibility, accommodation and safety
  • Vocational services when appropriate
