Occupational Therapy

Occupational TherapyThe occupational therapist provides treatment to people who have difficulties with functional daily living skills. Some patients require specialized treatment to achieve their maximum, individualized level of independence.

An activities-of-daily-living training room with an equipped bathroom and kitchen is available in Plumley Rehabilitation Center.

Following a complete evaluation by the occupational therapist, a specific plan of treatment is developed involving the patient, the staff and the family whenever possible. The occupational therapist may treat areas such as:

  • Functional mobility: Facilitating motion, strength, sensation and coordination of affected extremities.
  • Activity of daily living: Instruction in areas including eating, dressing, grooming, bathing and homemaking.
  • Splinting and positioning: The occupational therapist is specially trained to fabricate splints and design positioning devices to meet the needs of each patient.

Occupational TherapySpecialized education and a home evaluation is given to staff and family members to ensure maximum independence and quality of life for the patient.
