FAQ

Occupational Therapy

What is occupational therapy? Back

Occupational therapy focuses on helping patients develop or adapt the skills they need for everyday living. The goal of occupational therapy is to help people become as independent as possible with self care and with activities that are meaningful to each individual person.  Occupational therapists focus on functional use of the upper extremities and also recommend equipment for the home and train caregivers in assisting with tasks as needed.

How do I schedule a Driver Evaluation? Back

Those who have had a change in their cognitive function either because of advancing age or illness may be a candidate for the Driver Evaluation program. In order to be scheduled for a driver evaluation you need to get a prescription from your doctor. The prescription needs to have your name and diagnosis on it and it has to say "driving evaluation." Your contact information should be included with the prescription.  The prescription can be faxed to (914) 597-2763 or brought to the outpatient (Building 8) building on Burke's main campus in White Plains. Once we have the prescription, a representative will call you to set up the appointment. Driver evaluations are not generally covered by insurance.
