Our Occupational Therapists will work with our Residents to increase independence with activities of daily living (ADLís) including bathing, eating, dressing, self-care and home management tasks.
Safety awareness and fall prevention education is also provided by our Occupational Therapists.
Services occupational therapy offers include
- Upper body strengthening, to have the ability to dress, toilet, and complete other activities
- Transfer training, to be able to safely demonstrate the ability to get up and transfer
- Wheelchair management, for those who are wheelchair-bound so they are comfortable and are at a low risk of skin breakdown
- Cognition evaluation and training to ensure Residents can rationally demonstrate they are safe, in order to return home
If you or a loved one have been recently hospitalized and feel you may benefit from occupational therapy services, please contact Admissions at (574) 267-8922 to let us assist you.
