What is Occupational Therapy (and When Do You Need It)?
Many patients with injuries or illnesses hear about the benefits of occupational therapy. If you haven’t heard about occupational therapy before, you may be unfamiliar with how it works. Occupational therapy is a broad term for patient-centered practices designed to help someone with a physical or mental deficit complete daily activities.
Santé has a team of licensed occupational therapists available to help patients of all ages regain their independence and return to the everyday joys of life. Services are available in-home or at one of our transitional rehabilitation facilities. View the infographic below to determine if occupational therapy could benefit you or a loved one.
There are numerous applications for occupational therapy, from reorganizing the apartment of a senior with Alzheimer’s for better safety to helping a patient who has lost the use of an arm re-learn to cook with their disability. Occupational therapy isn’t about what a patient can’t accomplish – it’s about what they can do.
