Occupational Therapy

Medical staff with wheel chairA part time Occupational Therapist is available to assist residents to increase their independent functioning and productivity in activities of daily living. The therapist provides assessment services to assist with care and transfers, to define mobility needs, and to recommend assistive devices and adaptive equipment to maximize independence and safety for the residents and staff. She also provides wheelchair, seating and mobility assessments that can provide increased function, improved body alignment, proper positioning, minimize pain and fatigue, as well as assist in promoting skin integrity. To assist with a portion of the expense of purchase of new mobility aides the Occupational Therapist can complete funding applications for the provincial Assistive Devices Program (ADP).
