Occupational Therapy

The OT Difference

We understand that people with cognitive challenges develop gaps in their abilities. By drawing on the expertise of occupational therapists, our program identifies these gaps and collaboratively develops strategies and techniques to fill in the gaps. The occupational therapist and nurse then share these strategies with family members and caregivers, allowing them to apply the techniques and partner with residents to maximize their abilities. This customization promotes an ongoing sense of purpose and pride, allowing residents to thrive and retain life skills for longer periods of time.
