Patient Information

Occupational Therapy


The Occupational Therapy team assists patients and family members or caregivers in learning how to do familiar tasks in a new way, to make the transition to home and the community as smooth as possible.

Occupational therapists help patients become as independent as possible in their daily activities, including dressing, bathing, personal hygiene, feeding, getting around in the home and community, and pursuing household, work-related or leisure activities. Following a thorough evaluation of the visual, perception, and cognitive skills related to functional activities, the occupational therapist designs a treatment program tailored to each patient. The therapist determines appropriate equipment for each patient (e.g. wheelchair, bathroom equipment, adaptive equipment, electronic equipment), and teaches the necessary skills for using it.
