Occupational Therapy

You may benefit from occupational therapy if an illness or injury begins to make your everyday activities more difficult. This form rehabilitation services improves functional independence and helps patients take part in things they want and need to do for a higher quality of life. At Wabash General Hospital, our occupational therapists are specialists in treating patients of all ages. They help by teaching or improving “the skills for the job of living.” Typical occupational therapy interventions may include assistance with injury recovery and help regaining functional skills and providing support for elderly patients who experience physical or cognitive challenges.
