Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is critical for patients with certain medical conditions to gain or maintain the ability to perform everyday activities and allows SEARHC patients to develop skills that allow day-to-day independence.

For an adult, those skills include:

  • Areas of self-care
  • Taking care of one’s home
  • Leisure activities
  • Work functions
  • Cognitive retraining to ensure safety and learn decision-making and safety skills for managing medications

Pediatric therapies help patients in the areas of:

  • Play
  • Hand washing
  • Drawing
  • Using scissors
  • Sensory integration
  • Gross and fine motor coordination

Mt. Edgecumbe Medical Center is proud to offer this critical service. Those interested in occupational therapies should meet with their primary care provider and obtain a referral before making appointments through the SEARHC Rehabilitation Services department.

Contact your primary care provider for a referral.
