Occupational Therapy

Thumb Skilled5 Star Healthcare, Inc. employs occupational therapist. Our Occupational Therapists evaluate the patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living, determine the obstacle to independence and develop programs that help restore function. The evaluation includes identifying obstacles such as muscle strength, decreased coordination, or inability to bend or reach without losing balance. They provide a program to address these issues and help patients adapt to the environment as necessary.

Some of the patients the Occupational Therapists see are those who have had a stroke or cardiac episode, spinal cord injury, orthopedic surgery or arthritis can all benefit from occupational therapy services. Your occupational therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan in conjunction with your physician. The physician can make the determination of the patient who will benefit from occupational therapy. Comprehensive assessment may include but not limited to assessment of activities of daily living, home safety issues at home, pain assessment and management, upper extremity strength and range of motion, energy conservation, joint protection, adaptive equipment assessment and instruction and retraining patients to get back to their usual type of activity.
