Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy

HealthSouth’s occupational therapy team assists the patients in developing the skills to take care of themselves when a health problem limits normal, day-to-day activity, such as bathing, dressing, eating, preparing meals, doing housework and managing personal business. Therapy may include the following:

  • Exercises related to activities and function of the upper body
  • Training to improve self-care, dressing and activities of daily living
  • Assessment for visual and spatial impairment
  • Energy conservation measures for improved endurance
  • Home improvements for safety and increased independence
  • Training on the use of adaptive equipment to improve independence and safety during daily life tasks
  • Assessment and treatment of cognitive impairments

Becoming a Patient

Our hospital provides care for those who are ready to be discharged from a hospital but not ready to return home. Treatment and care is designed to bridge the gap between hospital and home. Anyone who is limited functionally from an injury or illness can benefit from rehabilitation.
