The Occupational Therapy Department at Southwest Regional Rehabilitation Center helps individuals become as self-sufficient as possible in the activities of daily life. Registered Occupational Therapists and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants work closely with patients to establish realistic goals and help them lead productive, independent and satisfying lives.
Following an initial evaluation, therapists design an individualized treatment program. This program varies on the individual need of each patient and may include work on functional activities, training with adaptive equipment or orthotics, splinting, exercise, or patient education. Occupational Therapy seeks to restore skills, or it can help the patient learn new compensatory methods.
The Occupational Therapist and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant work closely with all other members of the rehabilitation team, including physicians, nurses, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, case managers, and recreation and vocational rehabilitation specialists.
Inpatient services are provided seven days a week. Outpatient services are available by appointment Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM. For further information on the services provided through Southwest Regional Rehabilitation Center's Occupational Therapy Department you may call 269-965-3206.
