Wesley's occupational therapy department has a wide scope of services that can be provided to both inpatients and outpatients. Our goal is to assist each patient in reaching his or her maximum level of function with whatever limitations are present.
The occupational therapy staffs at our facilities serve patients of all ages, ranging from newborns to the elderly. Patients may be in our acute care, trauma, orthopedic, neurological or pediatric units. Our outpatient services assist adults and children who have neurological or orthopedic concerns.
Our treatment plans are designed to meet the individual needs of each person. An evaluation is completed on the first visit, and a treatment follows only after the therapist, patient and physician develop a unique treatment plan with the best chance at the desired patient outcome.
Areas of specific treatment:
- Upper extremity function: range of motion, strengthening, coordination and splinting
- Activities of daily living: eating, dressing, hygiene, homemaking, life skills, adaptive equipment and work skills
- Cognitive-perceptual tasks: problem solving, writing, judgment, visual-perception and memory
- Psychosocial: personal relationships, leisure activities, coping skills, stress management, group interaction and aging process
Work strategy programs:
Our occupational therapists specialize in functional capacity evaluation, work hardening programs, pre-employment back screening and work-site analysis. We want to help you or a loved one succeed!
