UMMC's occupational therapy department is dedicated to maximizing a patient's functional abilities and independence by reducing the effects of disabilities caused by a physical, developmental or psychological dysfunction. Occupational therapists and certified assistants work together with the patient, family and other professionals to promote independence, restore basic functions, cope with disabilities and hasten return to work.
Occupational therapy services for inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation include helping adults learn how to carry out daily living activities, adjust to problems associated with aging, make layout and design changes at home/work, and improve communication skills.
Occupational therapy is one of the many therapies offered at University Rehabilitation Center, a “care bridge” from hospital to home for adults recovering from strokes, amputations, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, arthritis, joint replacement, neurological disorders and other medical conditions.
