Occupational therapists restore patients’ functional independence in their occupations.
Occupational therapy helps patients of all ages, subsequent to an illness, injury, social disadvantage or environmental problem, to acquire, maintain, or improve the skills needed to meet the challenges of daily life:
- Personal care (basic care, mobility);
- Recreation (social activities, sports);
- Productivity (games, school, work, tasks, housework).
Occupational therapists prove to patients that life does not end after an illness or a disability and help them tap into human beings’ remarkable ability to adapt. They help people get over the physical, emotional, or mental barriers that hinder their day-to-day activities.
The service is provided to patients referred by a physician or nurse practitioner.
Hours of operation: Monday to Friday, from 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
