Our Staff

 

Our staff in the occupational therapy department is dedicated to using all available tools to help patients get on the road to recovery. During therapy, our trained and professional staff will teach patients how to compensate for side effects they may be experiencing, by developing skills and educating with assistive equipment (such as splints, reacher, grab bar placement, and bathroom equipment).

The staff in the occupational therapy department focuses not only on helping patients during rehabilitation, but also in the community. Fall prevention and wellness are areas of education we are able to provide. Our caring and compassionate staff will work with patients and their family/ caregivers to reach individual goals through evaluation, treatment, education, patient and family teaching, provision of specialized programs and follow-up care.
