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:
- Hand washing
- Using scissors
- Sensory integration
- Gross and fine motor coordination
Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital 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.
