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