OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY SERVICES
Our occupational therapists are dedicated to preserving a resident's independence
in his or
her activities of daily living. This may range from social and leisure, or work-related
to personal hygiene and self-care. The daily acts of grooming, dressing, bathing,
and other acts that require the use of fine motor skills may be addressed by an occupational
therapy program. An occupational therapist may also create a treatment program to
cognitive re-training. This involves addressing deficits in such areas as problem
memory, and ability to task that may negatively impact safety and independence.
