Occupational Therapy From Experts

Occupational therapy helps patients regain the ability to perform daily activities safely and efficiently. OT assists patients in becoming as independent as possible in the areas that matter most to them so they can return to their everday lives. This may include strengthening specific muscles, improving coordination, cognition, and vision. Examples include self-care skills, parenting, cooking, driving, and returning to work. OT specialists focus on endurance training, work simplification, and using at-home special equipment. They may also assess the need for adaptations or modifications to the home itself.

Another way Gaylord occupational therapists teach patients to prepare for a return to everyday life is Easy Street™. This is a simulated community inside the hospital that has models of a grocery store, kitchen, bedroom, and automobile. Easy Street maximizes patient recovery and success.

Inpatient Occupational Therapy

Whether as a result of illness or injury, every patient is different, so rehabilitation must be individualized. Our inpatient program supports each stage of recovery including improving your ability to perform daily activities safely and efficiently.

Outpatient Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists also work with patients in our Outpatient Services, where they continue to help patients achieve new goals and levels of independence.
