April is Occupational Therapy Month

Celebrating 100 years of helping people live their lives to the fullest!

Occupational therapists (OT) help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do in their homes, at work, in school and throughout the community. From a patient’s initial evaluation to the development and follow through of their rehabilitation plans, an OT works hard to make sure that their patient is able to return to the activities they enjoy and need to live a full and healthy life.

In an outpatient setting, some of the responsibilities of our occupational therapists may include:

• Hand and upper extremity movement and rehabilitation
• Teaching patients to use assistive devices to complete activities of daily living (ADL’s)
• Rehabilitating patients recovering from stroke to regain strength, movement, and learn to accomplish ADL’s in modified ways.
• Working with employers to create programs designed to reduce risk and injury in the workplace.
• Helping children struggling to achieve developmental goals progress to their highest possible levels
• Working with patients suffering from neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s to remain active.
